results of this visitation, with the three following exceptions, 
are given on pp. 16 et seq. of this part of the report. (1) The 
investigation of associations which have applied for charters 
since the Acts of 1910, chapter 181, went into effect will be 
found in Part IT, (p. iii), which is devoted exclusively to 
private charitable corporations. (2) The inspection of char-

In addition to inspection by paid officers, members of the

j>ersons relieved by cities and towns, and 1,000 copies of so much 
as relates to charitable corporations. 

In Part II. of the report are given abstracts of the report- 
of charitable corporations whose i)ersonal property is exempt 
from taxation, the reports being made annually to the Board, 
under the law. Of the TH corporations whose returns were 
called for during the last official year. 42 failed to report. 
Thirty-four of these delinquents have heretofore made the re- 
turn. Twenty-three of the reports received were from corpora- 
tions reporting for the first time. 

The purpose in a seriatim presentation of the various reports 
is that of acquainting the public with the work of the resi">ective 
agencies throughout the State. There is ample evidence that 
this purpose is being accomplished. 

Part II. contains also the record of new corporations, the 
petitions for whose incorporation have been investigated by the 
Board. There is also an account of the Board's visitation and 
inspection of all agencies under the provisions of chapter 370 
of the Acts of 1909. 

The chapter on poor relief, foimd in Part III. of the report, 
furnishes details respecting the poor supported or relieved at 
public expense during the year ending March 31. 1914. — their 
numbers, condition, treatment and cost, — in tabulated form, 
which facilitates comparison. These facts are gathered from the 
annual returns of Overseers of the Poor of the several cities 
and town? ; from the published tovni reports : from the records 
of the State institutions in which such relief has been rendered ; 
and from the files of this Board. 

Statistics of numbers refer strictly to the year ending March 
31. 1914. Pigures relating to cost, however, contain an element 
of inaccuracy, since the financial returns of the cities and to^vns 
relate, in each instance, to the town's fiscal year, while the only 
figures available for State care relate to the State's fiscal year, 
closing Xovember 30. 1914. Figures of cost, therefore, are 
comparable only in the most general way. Greater accuracy in 
these cost tables awaits the adoption of a uniform town year, 
which will be coincident with the State's fiscal year. In the 
meantime it is believed that data regarding expenses for the 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 9 

State and for local communities are worth setting together for 
general comparison in- spite of overlapping periods. 

The tabulations taken from these returns of poor relief show 
that within the year covered the whole number of cases receiv- 
ing public support or relief, excluding vagrants, was 86,425, 
of w^hom 21,366 were aided in institutions. State or local, and 
65,059 were relieved outside, either in their own home or in 
private families not their o^vn. This latter class constitute the 
group usually indicated by the term '^ public outdoor relief.'' 
The total cared for in city and town almshouses numbered 
10,635 ; in other institutions, 3,822 ; in their own homes, 
63,430 ; in private families not their own, 1,629 ; the cities and 
towns aided 79,516; the remainder, or 6,909, falling to the 
State. The sexes were almost equal. The foreign born repre- 
sented 33 per cent., a proportion which is 1.6 per cent, higher 
than the ratio of foreign born generally to the total in the 
population of the State. A negligible percentage were of the 
colored race. In respect of age at time of aid rendered 39,594, 
or 45.8 per cent., were under twenty years; 32,674, or 37.8 per 
cent., were between twenty and sixty; and 12,083, or 13.9 per 
cent., were sixty or over. The mentally impaired numbered 
590. 

Instances of tramps and vagrants aided were reported to the 
number of 15,063. This figure is, however, certainly an under- 
estimate, inasmuch as the overseers, charged with the making 
of these returns, seldom report those instances of relief to 
tramps and wayfarers which are taken care of by the police. 
On the other hand, because each application for relief, if fol- 
lowed by aid, is counted as one person aided, it is certain that 
the number of cases reported greatly exceeds the actual number 
of separate individuals represented. Greater accuracy in the 
statistics of vagrancy is hoped for when chapter 606 of the Acts 
of 1914 becomes effective, placing wayfarers' lodges and cheap 
lodging houses under the supervision of this Board. 

The total expenses for public poor relief were $4,002,170.09. 
The State paid $752,233.46 of this sum; the remainder, or 
$3,^49,936.63, fell to the cities and toAvns. Of the local gToss 
expense, $3,085,669.91 was for ordinary outlays, including 



]() STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. I). 17. 

$247,804.05 for administration. This item includes also 
$1,304,218.18 for almshouse maintenance, $200,492.95 for 
care in other institutions, $219,035.55 for aid in private fam- 
ilies, and $1,054,059.18 for aid in the recipient's own home. 
From the total is to be subtracted $354,045.72, received on 
account of almshouse care, and all other receipts, amounting to 
$314,044.70, giving $2,417,579.49 as the net ordinary expendi- 
ture. Extraordinary outlays totalled $104,266.72. 

c. Legislation, 
The principal recommendations of the Board for legislative 
action are as follows : — 

1. The establishment of an additional institution for the care 
of persons ^vho have been legally declared to be feeble-minded, 
but who, because of the lack of facilities for their proper cus- 
tody and treatment, still remain in the community and in in- 
stitutions not suited to their care. 

The existing institutions for the care of feeble-minded per- 
sons are filled to the limit of their capacity, and the waiting- 
list of persons adjudged feeble-minded is greatly in excess of 
one thousand. Recent enlargement of the Wrentham State 
School has taken care of but a small fraction of those persons 
who for lack of segregation are a menace in the community,, 
in that they are a fruitful source of illegitimacy, prostitution, 
crime and the perpetuation of mental defect. Much that the 
Commonwealth and its local communities are now doing to 
relieve distress and to safeguard public health and morals is 
done as a direct result of their own failure to cut off the causes 
of such ills by segregating the persons who constitute the source. 
The relation of feeble-mindedness to crime and chronic de- 
])endency is now well understood. There is no longer any 
uncertainty. Neither is there longer any question that feeble- 
mindedness descends from generation to generation. Measures 
to reduce propagation of feeble-minded persons constitute per- 
haps the most urgent step now called for in the constructive 
program of this Commonwealth. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 11 

2. The Board also repeats from last year its recommenda- 
tion of a hospital for the care and treatment of sick State wards. 
It has constantly in its care hundreds of children, each one of 
whom is for days, weeks, or perhaps months, in need of hos- 
pital treatment. Such children are for the time ])eing in- 
capable of placement in homes. They require treatment in 
some institution until their health is such that they may he 
sent out into the community. With a total of 5,600 children 
in the Board's custody, this margin of cases requiring hospital 
care is constant and may be expected to increase 6 or 7 per 
cent, each year, in exact proportion to the normal increase in 
the total number of wards. Some of these are feeble-minded, 
and would be cared for properly should the foregoing recom- 
mendation in regard to more care for the feeble-mindeil meet 
with favor ; but a large number must still remain. Yet the 
Board has no hospital in which to treat these children. Some, 
falling sick in their foster homes, are cared for by private hos- 
pitals at State expense. Most are sent to the State Infirmary, 
the only hospital to which the Board can send them. Here they 
are out of place, and tend to hamper the infirmary in its more 
legitimate activities. Thus located, they are an ever-increasing 
danger to themselves. At the same time, they lose the benefit 
of special care and treatment, so frequently demanded by the 
miserable condition in which they are found b}^ the authorities 
and in which they remain at the time of commitment to the 
Board's custody. 

In view of these considerations, the Board recommends the 
establishment of a children's hospital, in some place other than 
Tewksbury, for the temporary care and treatment of State 
minor wards too ill to be cared for in foster homes. 

•3. The Board recommends the creation of a separate board 
of trustees to administer Penikese Hospital, retaining only the 
supervision in this Board. 

As represented last year, though the State Board of Charity 
has always believed that lepers should be cared for on the main- 
land Avhere nearness of friends and relatives would soften the 
sadness of exile, and where the outlay of public money would 



12 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

be much less, while the danger to the commimity would be no 
greater, it has nevertheless maintained and developed the hos- 
pital located on the Island of Penikese in response to public 
feeling, so that, should the dispensary building asked for this 
year be granted, this institution would rank with the most 
efficient leprosaria in the world. And this work will be cheer- 
fully continued, should the Legislature consider that the wiser 
course. This recommendation of a separate administrative 
board is made in the belief that it is now possible to secure the 
services of specialists in this disease upon such a hospital board, 
and in the further belief that the administration of State in- 
stitutions and their supervision should in all cases be placed 
in separate bodies, and that the duties of a board primarily 
supervisory in nature should not be complicated by adminis- 
trative duties, where necessity or considerations of public 
expediency do not appear. 

4. Experience in the administration of Penikese Hospital 
fully demonstrates the need of specially adapted facilities for 
the care and treatment of lepers. It is essential that the en- 
forcement of cleanliness with regularity of treatment be 
brought about without unduly exposing the staff of officers 
whose duty it is to bathe these patients, treat them and bind 
up their wounds. The Board therefore asks for a building 
to contain bathing facilities, dispensary and space for X-ray 
apparatus, with adjoining wings for bed cases. The estimate 
for this structure equipped and furnished is $40,000. Mem- 
bers of the Legislature who visited the island last year con- 
curred in the necessity of this addition to hospital facilities. 
The request for an appropriation was, however, denied. It is 
here renewed with urgent plea that it be granted. '/ 

5. In its supervision of the field of relief, public and pri- 
vate, the Board makes a study of all agencies and sources for 
philanthropic effort. In this study it is necessary to ascertain 
the various charitable trusts and special funds created by will ; 
but no means exist by which the fact of such trusts and be- 
quests may be obtained, except the long and costly method of 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 13 

searching local records. The Board, therefore, requests legis- 
lation providing for notice from registers of probate and of 
deeds when wills or deeds are filed containing charitable be- 
quests, trusts, or foundations. 

6. In order to carry on its duties with the highest degree of 
efficiency and expediency, the Board requests legislation pro- 
viding for certain special district police officers, to serve the 
Board in its execution of chapter 456 of the Acts of the year 
1911 and chapter 563 of the Acts of the year 1913. These 
officers would be in every way analogous to police officers 
already authorized for certain purposes in the Board's work, 
and would involve no additional expense to the Commonwealth. 
The experience of another year since this recommendation was 
first made has demonstrated the advisability of this provision. 

7. An amendment to chapter 181 of the Acts of the year 
1910, rendering the Board's approval requisite to the incorpo- 
ration of private charities, and providing that all changes of 
name or of purpose shall be investigated in like manner w^ith 
petitions for incorporation. Under this statute the Board is 
required to investigate all petitions for the incorporation of 
private charities, to give public hearings and to report its find- 
ings to the Secretary of the Commonwealth. The operation 
of this law, in connection with chapter 402 of the Acts of the 
year 1903, requiring annual reporting by all charities, and 
chapter 379 of the Acts of the year 1909, providing annual in- 
spection of incorporated charitable agencies, is demonstrating 
beyond all question the wisdom of State supervision of incor- 
porated charitable agencies. Though this policy is of recent 
date, the incorporated charities of the entire Commonwealth 
have come to look upon State supeiwision as a help in the devel- 
opment of right standards of relief. Bearing in mind the 
public trusteeship involved in every private charity, the Board 
believes that the time has come when its special knowledge in 
the field of private charities should be brought to bear upon all 
new petitions for the incorporation of charities by rendering 
its approval requisite to the issuance of a charter. The recom- 
mendation is repeated from last year. 



14 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. 1). 17. 

8. The Board requests an additional appropriation of $800 
for the publication of a manual of the laws relating to the 
charities of the Commonwealth. By chapter 14, Resoh-es of 
the year 1913, the Board was authorized to prepare and pub- 
lish such a manual, and the sum of $600 was appropriated for 
the purpose. Pursuant to this authorization the Board has 
prepared the manual without extra expense to the State, but 
now finds that the original appropriation will be consumed 
in the printing, leaving no provision for securins^ copies. The 
Board, therefore, asks the additional sum of $800. 

9. The Board recommends an amendment to chapter 779 of 
the Acts of the year 1913, which would place State reimburse- 
ment for tuition of State wards in the public schools upon a 
flat-rate basis. Under the law as it now stands reimbursement 
is made at the rate of 50 cents for each week, " or, if the school 
committee of said city or town so desires, an amount equal to 
the average expense for each pupil of such school during the 
preceding year, for a period equal to the time during which 
the child so attends.'' 

While it is doubtful whether this alternative provision has 
resulted more equitably to the cities and towns than did the 
former flat rate, its ojDeration has given rise to gTeat difficul- 
ties in audit, and affords the State authorities no means of 
verifying the financial accounting upon which the claim of the 
local authorities is based. The Board, therefore, recommends 
that the rate of reimbursement be determined as equitably as 
possible, and thereupon set in the form of a flat rate. 

The following measures affecting the Board were passed by 
the Legislature of 1914: —

chapter 358, establishing the Board of Trustees for Xorfolk 
State Hospital. 

THE STATE INSTITUTIONS. 
The State institutions under the supervision of the Board 
are: the State Infirmary, at Tewksbury; the State Farm, at 
Bridgewater ; the Xorfolk State Hospital ; the Lyman School 
for Boys, at Westborough; the Industrial School for Boys, at 
Shirley; the State Industrial School for Girls, at Lancaster; 
the Massachusetts Hospital School, at Canton ; the Xorth Read- 
ing State Sanatorium ; the Rutland State Sanatorium ; the 
Lakeville State Sanatorium ; and the AVestfield State Sana- 
torium. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 17 

The supervisory powers of the Board over these institutions 
extend to the right of investigation and recommendation as to 
any matters relating to the institutions, but the administration 
of each is vested in a separate Board of Trustees. 

In addition, the Board this year for the first time assumes 
the supervisory relationship heretofore exercised by the State 
Board of Insanity over tlie Hospital Cottages for Children, a 
private charitable corporation located at Baldwinsville. This 
institution has been aided by State appropriations, and has five 
members among its Trustees who are appointed by the Gov- 
ernor. 

The State Infirmary and the State Farm are controlled by 
one Board of Trustees. Its membership is as follows : John B. 
Tivnan, Salem, Chairman; Helen R. Smith, Xewton; Leonard 
Huntress, Lowell ; Galen L. Stone, Brookline ; Xellie E. Tal- 
bot, Brookline ; Francis W. Anthony, Haverhill ; Dennis D. 
Sullivan, Middleborough. 

The !N"orfolk State Hospital for the care and treatment of 
inebriates is administered by the following Board of Trustees: 
W. Rodman Peabody, Cambridge, Chairman; Robert A. Woods, 
Boston ; Philip R. Allen, Walpole ; John J. Phelan, Boston ; 
Frank L. Locke, Maiden ; Edwin IMulready, Rockland ; William 
H. Prescott, Boston. 

The Trustees of Massachusetts Hospitals for Consumptives 
administer the four sanatoria, but have no powers over the tuber- 
culosis Avards of the State Infirmary. The Board is constituted 
as follows: Walter C. Bailey, M.D., Boston, Chairman; Albert 
C. Getchell, Worcester ; Arthur Drinkwater, Cambridge ; Sylvia 
B. Knowlton, Xewton ; Daniel L. Prendergast, Brookline ; 
Simon Swig, Taunton ; George A. Dunn, Gardner. 

The three training or industrial schools fall under the con- 
trol of the Trustees of the Massachusetts Training Schools. 
The Board is as follows: Carl Dreyfus, Boston, Chairman; 
James J. Sheehan, Peabody; Mary Josephine Bleakie, Brook- 
line ; Matthew Luce, Cohasset ; John F. Scully, Arlington ; 
Amy Ethel Taylor, Lexington ; Charles ^1. Davenport, Boston ; 
James W. McDonald, Marlborough; Lewis M. Palmer, South 
Framingham. 



18 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The Massachusetts Hospital School is administered by the 
following Board of Trustees: Edward H. Bradford, M.D., 
Boston, Chairman; Leonard W. Ross, Mattapan, Secretary; 
Walter C. Baylies, Taunton ; William F. Fitzgerald, Brook- 
line; Alfred S. Pinkerton, Worcester. 

In addition to the eleven State institutions which the Board 
supervises is Penikese Hospital, the Massachusetts hospital for 
the care and treatment of persons afflicted with leprosv. This 
institution is administered directly bv the State Board of 
Charity. For the sake of uniformity and comparison, all 
twelve institutions are grouped together in this report. 

KUMBEES. 

The total number of cases under care in these institutions 
during the year was 21,679. Of the total number, 17,219 were 
males and 4,460 were females. Eleven thousand five hundred 
forty-three were received for hospital treatment; 2,221 were 
juvenile delinquents; 6,616 w^ere adult offenders, mostly chronic 
drunkards; and 1,299 were indigent persons, having no legal 
settlement and not included in the above classifications. Of 
the hospital cases, 3,519 were suffering from pulmonary tuber- 
culosis ; 1,721 were insane. 

Capacity. 
Four institutions, namely, the State Infirmary, the Lyman 
School and the sanatoria at N'orth Reading and Westfield, 
showed considerable excess in daily average attendance over 
normal capacity of plant. The State Infirmary, with a daily 
average population of 2,42 8 -f- and a normal capacity for but 
2,336, was the most heavily taxed, its daily excess amounting 
to 92+ patients. This institution houses some 800 insane 
patients and an average of 250 of the feeble-minded. Tlie 
latter class is composed mostly of children who are cared for 
at the Infirmary because they are a menace if allowed to go 
at large in the community, and because no other institutional 
provision exists for their care. This year the demand has come 
from all parts of the State for a third school for the feeble- 
minded. This Board repeats its recommendation of last year, 
and submits a bill providing for such a school. The Board 
also repeats its recommendation of last year and previous years 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 



19 



that the insane be removed from the Infirmary. The recom- 
mendation is made in the interests of better classification. 

The Lyman School showed a condition of crowding only a 
little less pronounced. Considering the purposes of the. school, 
the lack of adequate facilities for care has become extremely 
serious. The request for a cottage to house 30 boys made by 
the trustees last year was refused by the Legislature. Present 
conditions show double that number demanding quarters. Be- 
cause the purposes of this school cannot be carried out under 
such serious conditions of overcrowding, this Board has recom- 
mended to the Trustees that they request legislation similar to 
that in force regarding the Industrial School for Boys, em- 
powering them to notify the courts when the school is filled to 
capacity, and thus preventing further commitments until va- 
cancies occur. 

The four sanatoria have been filled beyond capacity during 
the past year, as in every year since their establishment. Rut- 
land shows a normal population, and Lakeville, by reason of 
recent additions to capacity, has had a daily excess of but 5. 
Xorth Reading and Westfield, with excesses of 20+ and 14+ 
respectively, have made extensive use of temporary tents, by 
which means they have relieved their waiting lists only a little. 

The accompanying tabulation indicates the fluctuations of 
daily attendance above and below the normal capacity for each 
institution.

Cost of MAI^'TE^'A^-CE. 
The combined appropriations for maintenance were $1,809,- 
642.90. The total expenditures on the same account were 
$1,811,134.44, creating a net deficit of $1,491.54. Of the sum

appropriations, as shown in Table I. To the tabulation is 
added for better comparison the Board's own estimate for 
Penikese Hospital. Estimates for sj^ecial purposes will be 
considered later in this report under each of the institutions 
separately. 

Comparative View of Movement of Population A^'D of 

EXPEXDITURES. 

The movement of population in the twelve institutions men- 
tioned in the foregoing pages is shown in brief but comparative 
form in Table II. Inmates are classified by sex. while the 
daily average attendance apj)ears in a column adjoining the 
average number of officers and employees. The average num- 
ber of persons employed, shown in this table, is obtained from 
an exact analysis of the pay rolls reducing all employment to 
a basis of days. Table III. atiFords a comparative view of ex- 
penditures at all the institutions, classified as "^ current '' and 
** extraordinary." Tables II. and III. are drawn in accord- 
ance with the statistical form adopted by the Xational Con- 
ference of Charities and Correction, Mav 15, 1906.

have exceeded expectations. Cases admitted with recurrence of 
lesions are steadily decreasing in number, and this decrease is 
especially noticeable among those who have received the treat- 
ment in the two previous years. 

In the development of plant, the year shows some important 
extensions. A building housing 40 employees has been com- 
pleted and occupied. Of still greater importance is the path- 
ological laboratory occupied toward the close of the year. This 
building supplies one of the greatest needs that have faced the 
staff in recent years, namely, the necessity for greater facilities 
Avith which to make intensive laboratory study of the medical 
problems crying for analysis. This special study looks to the 
solution of problems in dependency. With the help of the new 
laboratory it is expected that research studies will receive added 
impetus, so that this institution, one of the richest fields for 
research in the world, shall stand high among American insti- 
tutions as a contributor to man's knowledge of the causes that 
lie behind his community problems. This Board has ever 
urged that our State institutions should be developed into sta- 
tions for intelligent and intensive scientific research. This 
new impulse at one of our most important institutions is very 
gratifying. 

After-care of unmarried mothers discharged from the ma- 
ternity wards has continued this year with increasingly valu- 
able results. This work is carried on at present by the social 
service committee of this Board. At page 116, post, will be 
found a detailed account of numbers in care, and the disposi- 
tion made of their problems. 

The Infirmarv Trustees ask the following special appropria- 
tions, all of w^hich, with the exception of the building for 100 
children, are approved by this Board : — 

1. For hot-water circulating system $13^878 00 

2. For mechanical handling of coal 10,000 00

STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. I). 17 



The last item would take advantage of a present opportunity 
to add to the plant a plot of land at the gateway of the institu- 
tion. All the other items are repeated from last year, while 
item 1 is recommended now for the third time. The proposal 
to construct quarters for 100 children is disapproved this year. 
as last, on the ground that this is an improj^er development of 
the Infirmary. In taking this view, however, the Board urges 
in its recommendations to the Legislature that further provi- 
sion be made for the feeble-minded, and that a hospital be built 
at some place other than Tewksbury for the temporary care 
and treatment of State minor wards. It is only by such means 
that the hundreds of children now cared for at the Infirmary 
can be removed and maintained under proper classification 
elsewhere. 

The items for hot-water circulating system and for improved 
facilities for handling coal are the result of long and thorough 
study by engineers of the most efficient and most economic plan 
for securing heat, light, and power. The building to house 100 
nurses would relieve present overcrowding, and would l>etter 
the personnel in the nursing staff. The improvement is gi'eatly 
needed.

for indigent persons not chargeable to any city or town; and 
hospital care for insane male convicts. Persons committed for 
drunkenness are in almost all cases chronic drunkards. 

During the year, 7,915 persons have been care<:l for, — 38 
more than last year, and* 69 more than in 1912. Largest daily 
census, 2,955; smallest, 2,320; daily average, 2,577. Of the 
whole number under care, 5,719 Avere prisoners, 1,299 were 
paupers, and 897 were insane convicts. The total number of 
commitments was -1,253, of which 3,589, or 84.3 per cent., were 
for drunkenness. Of these 4,253 persons committed, 1,064, or 
25 per cent., were returned for A'iolation of parole; 2,971, or 
69.8 per cent., of all the new commitments had served time at 
the State Farm before. Of all commitments, 34.1 per cent, 
were made from Boston. These 4,253 commitments represent 
1,282 separate individuals. A comparative classification of all 
commitments, shoAving data for nine years, follows : —

The total number of persons leaving the institution during 
the year, whether by death, discharge, or release on parole, was 
4,984. The deaths numbered 120. 

Out of an appropriation of $352,500, a total of $352,483.80 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $112,624.29 was for salaries, wages, and 
labor; all other expenses, $239,859.51. Weekly per capita 
cost of maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and re- 
fnnds from maintenance, $2,591. Total receipts from all 
sources other than the State treasury, $13,803.74. Xet cost 
of maintenance to the Commonwealth, $338,680.06. Ratio of 
daily number of persons employed to daily average number of 
inmates, 1 to 12.8. The Trustees estimate that $365,000 will 



30 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. • [P. D. 17. 

be necessary for maintenance in 1915. (See table, page 21.) 
For detailed analysis of receipts and ex}>enditnres, see pages 
64-75. 

It is to be noted that though the total number of persons 
under care during the year in this institution exceeds by 38 
the number cared for in 1913, the number of commitments for 
drunkenness fell off 428. The reasons for this remarkable 
decline in a total that has been increasing steadily for years 
are not apparent. The development of Xorfolk State Hospital 
for the more hopeful cases undoubtedly has an important bear- 
ing, and it may also be the case that public opinion as reflected 
by the courts tends more and more to divorce drunkenness from 
the category of crimes. 

While the prison department shows a decrease for the year, 
the number of dei>endents admitted to the almshouse depart- 
ment has increased by 465, — almost double the total of 1913. 
About 100 of these cases were admitted by transfer from the 
State Infirmary. The remainder were Boston applications 
sent down in October and November. 

The asylum building addition and the freight storage are 
now complete. The freight storage building aft'ords the best 
modern facilities for handling freight. Two minor improve- 
ments authorized last year for the power plant were still in 
process at the close of the year. 

For the coming year the Trustees ask the following special 
appropriations : — 

1. Increased sewage area $15,000 00 

2. Additional office buildiue 3.500 00 



$18,500 00 



The first of these estimates would make necessary extension 
of the sewage area to keep pace with the constantly increasing 
demands of the instittition.

Provides care and treatment for inebriates and users of drugs 
in cases not deemed incurable, also detention colony for non- 
criminal chronics. 

This institution was opened for the admission of patients 
June 1, 1914. For the first six months of the fiscal year 1914, 
therefore, the hospital is to be regarded as a colony of Fox- 
borough State Hospital, the institution in which the J^orfolk 
experiment was incubated ; and it is only during the last six 
months that a true institution basis can be assumed for figures 
relating to numbers and cost. 

During the whole year 1,054 cases have been under care, 
representing 1,039 separate individuals. Of the whole num- 
ber, 91 were in residence at the beginning of the year. The 
remaining 963 were admitted during the year, while 824 were 
discharged, leaving 230 at the close of the year. The daily 
average number of inmates was 146.52 ; largest daily census, 
235 ; smallest, 76. 

Out of an appropriation of $90,000 a total of $89,709.62 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $28,888.13 was for salaries, wages, and 
labor; all other expenses, $60,821.49. Weekly per capita cost 
of maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds 
from maintenance, $11,723. 

Total receipts from all sources other than the State treasury, 
$762.45. 'Net cost of maintenance to the Commonwealth, 
$88,947.17. Eatio of daily number of persons employed to 
daily average number of inmates, 1 to 2.8. The Trustees esti- 
mate that $133,760 will be necessary for maintenance in 1915. 
(See table, page 21.) For detailed analysis of receipts and 
expenditures, see pages 64-75. 

Wastefulness following the retrenchment of last year and 
the year before is apparent this year in the excessive overhead 
expenses. The plant now consists of an overhead unit of 500- 
patient capacity, with actual housing quarters for but 250. 
The 250 additional beds requested, but not provided, could be 
maintained at only slight increase in general running expenses. 
At the same time, the 250 potential occupants of those beds are 
at large in the community, and are greatly in need of the hos- 
pital treatment which this hospital was created to provide. 



32 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Excessive exjDeiiditure of money is, however, not the greatest 
element of waste to which the Trustees have been driven bv the 
refusal of their estimates for new cottages. By chapter 558 of 
the Acts of 1914 the municipal court of the city of Boston was 
empowered to commit to the Xorfolk Hospital dipsomaniacs, 
inebriates, and druff habitues. Most of the cases comina' before 
the court belong to the class of confirmed drinkers for which 
the detention colony was designed ; but with the limited num- 
ber of beds there is no room for such commitments. Such 
cases are therefore of necessity discharged as fast as their 
places are required for hospital cases, and they very soon find 
their way back to the criminal courts. 

In spite of obstacles, however, the Trustees show in their re- 
port that forty per cent, of all cases discharged show material 
improvement, 24 per cent, having definitely reported as ab- 
stinent. With further development of the plant it is believed 
that this record can be still further improved. 

It is especially gTatifying to this Board to note the efforts 
of the Trustees to bring the new institution to the full per- 
formance of its function as an agency for preventive medicine. 
In the development of their out-patient department they step 
beyond the limits of care of patients already suffering from 
inebriety. Beside the rehabilitation of patients after their dis- 
charge from the hospital confines, they reach out into the com- 
munity, using their institution as an instrinnent for prevention 
of inebriety. Every State institution should be not an end in 
itself but a necessary step in the method by which the com- 
munity studies its problems and seeks to eliminate them. With 
this end in view, the Trustees of the Xorfolk Hospital are al- 
ready offering noteworthy results in dealing with the inebriate 
in his pre-institution and his after-care stages. 

It is further w^orthy of note that at the instance of the 
Trustees the State Agricultural College, the State Forestry 
department, and the State Fish and Game Commission are co- 
operating to develop the Xorfolk tract to a condition of maxi- 
mum usefulness. 

The Trustees ask this year for a total of $168,500 in special 
appropriations, almost all of which is a repetition of estimates 
not granted last year. The several items are as follows : —

11. Additional land 10,000 00 

12. A cottage for women patients, and furnishings . . 10,000 00 



$168,500 00 



This Board believes the foregoing additions necessary to the 
proper development of the institution. The cottage for 30 
women would provide hospital care for female inebriates and 
drug habitues, w^ho can be cared for under present conditions 
only by commitment to a prison or an insane asylum. 

THE STATE TRAINING SCHOOLS. 

The Lyman School for Boys at Westborough, the Industrial 
School for Boys at Shirley, and the Industrial School for Girls 
at Lancaster are the three industrial schools provided for by 
the State for juvenile delinquents. They are administered by 
a single Board of Trustees known as the Trustees of the Massa- 
chusetts Training Schools, Avith offices at 274 Boylston Street, 
Boston. 

Boys under fifteen years of age may be committed to the 
Lyman School, and under eighteen years of age to the school 
at Shirley. Girls under seventeen go to the institution at Lan- 
caster. All persons committed remain under the control of the 
Trustees during minority. For gTcater efficiency in adminis- 
tration, the Lyman School cares for boys under fifteen, while 
those over that age go to Shirley. 



34 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The total number of persons under care in these three insti- 
tutions during the year was 2,221. Of these, 1,062 were boys 
under fifteen, all at Lyman School, 599 were boys fifteen and 
over, at Shirley, and 560 were girls imder seventeen, cared for 
at Lancaster. 

In the three schools there were, at the beginning of the year, 
923 inmates, namely, 618 boys and 305 girls. One thousand 
two hundred ninety-eight were received during the year, and 
1,246 went out either by discharge or upon parole, leaving 975 
on Xovember 30, 1914, viz., 693 boys and 282 girls. 

As noted last year, the numbers in these three schools are 
rapidly increasing, a fact which has forced the Trustees of 
Lyman School to ask for a new cottage for 30 boys and attend- 
ants. They also ask for two new cottages at the Shirley School. 

The combined appropriations for the maintenance of the 
three schools totalled $281,996. On this account, $280,858.86 
was expended. Subtracting all receipts from sources other than 
the State treasury, the net cost of maintenance to the Common- 
wealth was $278,657.41. Details of administration and cost 
are considered under each school separately, as follows : —

Provides custodial care and industrial training for delinquent

During the year 1,062 cases have been under care, represent- 
ing 870 separate individuals. This total number of cases is 
38 more than in 1913 and 131 more than in 1912. The num- 
ber in the school at the beginning of the year was 439 ; admis- 
sions numbered 623; discharges, 604; remainder at the close 
of the year, 458. The daily average number of inmates was 
446.31, exceeding last year's average by 37.9. 

The list of causes of admission in the 623 cases received 
during the year was as follows: absconders returned, 116; 
assault, 3 ; breaking and entering, 43 ; delinquent child, 102 ; 
larceny, 46 ; returned or transferred from other institutions. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 35 

not penal, 34; returned from place of parole or board, 22G; 
receiving stolen goods, 1 ; transferred by the State Board of 
Charity, 29; stubbornness, 20; vagrancy, 1. Two hundred 
forty-six of the foregoing cases were committed by the courts. 
Of this number, 129 had been arrested before and 6-i had been 
inmates of other institutions. Ten per cent, were of American 
parentage; 45 per cent, of foreign parentage, 25 per cent, of 
mixed parentage, and 20 per cent, were ^mkno^vn. Ten of these 
boys were foreign born, while 234 were born in the United 
States. The nativity of two was unascertained. 

There has been a steady gTOwth in numbers at the school 
during the past year. The average number was 446.31 as com- 
pared with 408.39 in 1913 and 358 in 1912. The enrollment 
this year is the largest in the history of the school, reaching at 
its highest point a total of 475 boys. 

Xo appropriation for additional cottages was granted by the 
last Legislature, so that the plant, whose normal capacity is 
383, w^as seriously overtaxed. Were the resulting inconvenience 
the only or chief result of overcrowding the condition would 
be indeed serious, but the greatly increased difficulty of main- 
taining discipline, the enforced shortening of the term at the 
school resulting in placing boys out too early for them to receive 
the full benefit of the course, the return of boys to homes where 
the necessity of governing their children properly had not been 
sufficiently realized by parents, are additional consequences 
that militate against successful treatment of this gi'owing class 
of juvenile offenders. 

Kor is the expenditure of money saved by declining an ap- 
propriation for new cottages. It is merely deferred. And 
additional expense is transferred from the maintenance of the 
institution to meet the augmented demands of the parole de- 
partment. 

There is a steady growth in commitments, commensurate 
with the increase in population, perhaps temporarily accelerated 
by business depression which undoubtedly leaves its impress on 
social conditions underlying delinquency. 

There can be no question that a variable, but on the whole 
a progressive, increase of numbers of juvenile offenders is a 



36 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

condition that demands recognition. Probably there would be 
little di??cnt from the o])inion that the greatest cause contrib- 
uting to this condition is the indifference or active influence 
of parents who tolerate or create such home environment that 
it encourages or fosters disrespect for the law. Boys living 
under these conditions naturally become truants, loiterers, 
corner gangsters, petty thieves and neighborhood disturbers, 
and unless speedily taken in hand furnish the material for the 
making of criminals. A well-developed and widely applied 
system of probation for juveniles, which is based upon the spirit 
of true probation rather than contenting itself with titles and 
salaries, would do much to lessen the need for larger schools for 
the delinquent ; but even when this important development is 
attained there will still be no lack of need for correctional 
schools. Vicious and careless parents will continue to delegate 
to the community the task of caring for their children properly, 
and society in self-]^rotection must continue to accept the task. 

The routine of the school year has not varied greatly from 
preceding years, except as experience has tended to modify in 
some degTee a program that must of necessity be flexible. Some 
rearrangement of disciplinary matters has been made and some 
broadening of the industrial activities has taken place, notably 
in the installment and riperation of a modern shoe shop. 

As usual the boys have had a wholesome share of entertain- 
ments and seasonal sports. The major portion of the days 
have been divided between study, recreation, and work. The 
health of each individual has been carefully watched with 
gratifying results. Scrtipulous attention has l^een regularly 
and systematically applied to religious necessities with great 
benefit to the inmates and marked advantage to the discipline 
of the school. 

With an appropriation of $122,000. a total of $121,080.59 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $50,587.60 Avas for salaries, wages, and

The total expended out of appropriations for special pur-

mates, with a request for special appropriations covering the 
same : —

Items 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8 are repeated from last year. The 
new cottage, as previously explained, is sorely needed, the daily 
average number of inmates exceeding normal capacity by 63. 
In addition to the cottage with 30 beds the Trustees ask an 
appropriation with which to purchase land and buildings ad- 
joining the present institution holdings, and for remodeling 
the same to house 35 boys. This expedient would help relieve 
congestion, but should not, in the opinion of this Board, be 
urged to the detriment of a new cottage as called for in Item 2. 

A competent engineering survey reported a year ago that 
extension of the power plant and considerable replacement were 



38 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

necessary to efficient management. This need has increased 
with the passage of another year, during which all departments 
of the plant have been urged to full capacity.

Provides custodial care and industrial ti'aining for boys over 
fifteen and under twenty-one years of age. Only boys under 
eighteen may be admitted. 

During the year 599 cases have been cared for, representing 
500 separate individuals. This total number of cases is 29 
more than in the preceding year. The number in the school 
at the beginning of the year was 179. Admissions numbered 
420; discharges, 364; remainder at the close of the year, 235. 
The largest daily census was 240 ; the smallest, 179 ; daily 
average, 214.89. 

The list of causes of admission in the 420 cases received 
during the»year was as follows: absconders returned. 66; arson, 
1 ; assault, 4 ; assault and battery, 6 ; assault with intent to 
rape, 1 ; attempted larceny, 3 ; attempting to break and enter, 
3 ; begging, 1 ; breaking and entering, 26 ; breaking and enter- 
ing and larceny, 23; delinquent child, 28; drunkenness, 2; 
idle and disorderly, 5; larceny, 78; larceny and breaking glass, 
4 ; receiving stolen goods, 1 ; returned after leave of absence, 
13 ; returned from place or parole, 95 ; returned or transferred 
from institutions, not penal, 7 ; riding freight without leave, 
1; running away, 4; stubborn child, 36; trespass with intent 
to take fruit, 1 ; vagrancy, 10 ; violating probation, 1. 

Two hundred thirty-nine of the foregoing cases were com- 
mitted by the courts. Of the boys thus committed, 199 had 
been arrested before and 55 had been inmates of other institu- 
tions. Thirty-tAvo, or 13 per cent., were foreign born and 1 
was unknown. The remaining 206, or 86 per cent., were born 
in the United States. The average population of 214.89 ex- 
ceeds the average of the preceding year by 32.63. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 39 

Of the 364 boys discharged or released during the year, 86 
were placed at occupations, on parole ; 35 were sent to other 
institutions for custodial care, and 12 went to other institu- 
tions, not penal. 

An additional cottage has been built during the year making 
provision for 30 new beds. The boys are distributed in eight 
cottages, two of which contain 20 boys each, two, 40 boys, and 
four, 30 boys. Experience indicates that a unit of 30 is as 
large as can be efficiently handled under one roof. 

Cottage 'No. 5 was partially destroyed by a fire that con- 
sumed the old barn early in August, and was out of service 
until Thanksgiving. The boys in the interval were housed in 
the old Shaker Chapel, and took their meals in the administra- 
tion building. 

The grounds have been much improved by grading and the 
laying out of new lawns. Two additional sewer beds have been 
finished, making four altogether, which will be ample for a 
long time. The poultry department has been improved by the 
addition of a new brooder house with a hot-water heater, two 
incubators and ten brooders, and is made more effective in 
training the boys assigned to this branch. 

Fifty acres of wild land have been reclaimed, out of which 
were secured 375 cords of wood and 40,000 feet of lumber. 
Twenty-five acres have been cleared, plowed, and seeded, and 
the remainder put into pasture. 

The crops were generally very good, sufficient hay, ensilage, 
and roots for the stock, and all the vegetables needed for the 
school having been harvested. The dairy produced all the milk 
and butter requirements for the year. Beef, pork, eggs, and 
fowl were also furnished from the fai*m. 

The existing orchards are dying out, and a plan to set out 
10 acres in apples is under way. 

There are but two rooms that can be devoted to school classes, 
accommodating a total of 50 boys, so that it is impossible with 
the existing plant to meet any but the most urgent educational 
needs. Less than 9 per cent, of the boys classify above the 
eighth grade, and more than 25 per cent, are below sixth 
grade ; 4l/o per cent, are illiterates. The illiterates are given 



40 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

four hours' class work daily, and boys who classify in the fourth 
and fifth grades receive two hours daily. The work is confined 
of necessity to the fundamentals of reading, writing, and 
arithmetic. 

The size and character of the school permit, to an unusual 
degree, work with the individual boy, and make of the institu- 
tion a social clinic for the study of cause and treatment of each 
case. Practically no offense committed while in residence, ex- 
cept running away, smoking, and immorality, receive serious 
punishment. The theory of the school is not punitive but re- 
constructive, through study of the individual weaknesses and 
applications of the right kind of support, both moral and ma- 
terial. 

The boys soon learn that this is the underlying spirit of the 
school, and in all but the exceptional case lend their co-opera- 
tion to the efforts made in their behalf. 

There are nineteen different trades or vocations operating 
in the school's activities, giving a fair opportunity for choice, 
and furnishing at least the foundation for success when the 
course is completed. Not only is the boy trained to pursue a 
specialized trade, but his self-respect and confidence in himself 
is so strengthened that he the more easily acquires that normal 
view of his relation to society that will seiwe to keep him on 
the right path. 

Most of the admissions are physically inferior, due to their 
irregular course of living ; but the health record of the school 
proves that the judicious combination of recreation, work, and 
sleep restores to them the sturdiness and vitality proper to their 
age. 

Sports are fostered and heartily ]:>ursued. and keen but 
friendly rivalry in athletic contests goes no little way in build- 
ing up manly habits among those whose former pleasures were 
neither manly nor wholesome. 

During the open months swimming, baseball, and football 
are arduously pursued^ but in winter, except for coasting, there 
is no opportunity for games or sports. For this reason it is 
greatly to be desired that before long a gymnasium and game 
room may be provided. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 41 

Religious instruction and services for the boys of various 
faiths are regularly provided, and more would gladly be done 
in this connection were there a hall or place of assembly to 
permit. 

Out of an appropriation of $77,708, a total of $76,584.37 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $31, 559. '37 was for salaries, wages, and 
labor; all other expenses, $45,025. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $6,748. Total receipts from all sources other 
than the State treasury, $1,194.40. ^et cost of maintenance 
to the Commonwealth, $75,389.97. Ratio of daily average 
number of persons employed to daily average number of in- 
mates, 1 to 4+. The Trustees estimate that $86,143 will be 
necessary for maintenance in 1915. (See table, page 21.) For 
detailed analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pages 64-75. 

For the coming year the Trustees submit the following esti- 
mates, with a request for special appropriations covering the 
same : — 

1. For a central building providing chapel, schoolrooms, 

central offices, fireproof vault, and assembling and 

exercising room $90,000 00 

2. For two cottages for 30 boys each, and attendants, and 

for furnishing-, heating', and equipping the same . 49,000 00 

3. For fireproof storehouse 18,000 00 

4. For sidewalks 500 00 

5. For a lumber shed . . . . > . . . . 950 00 
0. For a wagon shed 1,250 00 



$159,700 00 



The first of these items is essential to the proper development 
of the school. There are at present no classroom facilities 
worthy the name. There is no place of assemblage indoors 
where religious exercises or instructive entertainment can be 
(iarried on. There is no spacious floor and no trappings for 
gymnasium exercises for inclement weather. The present ad- 
ministrative offices are quartered in an old dwelling where 
accommodations are cramped and inimical to efficient work. 



42 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The second item represents necessary expansion of a grow- 
ing institution. Admittance is refused in many cases simply 
because there is no room. In this contingency the court must 
find recourse in difficult probation or the demoralizing jail. 
Items 1 and 2 are repeated from last year. 

The fireproof storehouse would take the place of odd cellars 
and makeshift rooms in which supplies and repair materials 
are at present stored. The improvement is needed on the score 
of economical administration as well as safety from fire.

During the year 560 cases have been imder care. This total 
number of cases is 3 less than in 1913 and 48 more than in 1912. 
The number in the school at the beginning of the year was 305 ; 
admissions during the year, 255; discharged, including all per- 
sons going out of the schd?)l, 278; remaining Xovember 30, 
1914, 282. The largest daily census was 310; smallest, 285;

This school receives girls up to the age of seventeen years, 
who are committed by the court or transferred by the State 
Board of Charity as delinquents. The school plant comprises 
an administration building, a chapel, a school building, a small 
hospital, a storehouse, dairy and farm buildings, and ten cot- 
tages. One of these cottages is in the town of Bolton, a mile 
and a half from the school, and is at present used to house 
those inmates who show marked mental defect. 

Thirty-two of the 184 girls paroled last year went immedi- 
ately to parents or relatives. An examination of the records of 
the 117 girls who passed out of the care of the parole depart- 
ment in the past year shows that of 64 it could be said that tlieir 
conduct was good ; of 9 it was bad ; and of 14 it was unknown. 
In 30 cases it was impossible to classify. Thus 54 per cent, are 
known to be turning out well, while 7.7 per cent, are known to 
have conducted themselves badly. 

The large percentage of girls of k)w mental grade continues 
to confront the administration as one of its hardest problems. 
At the beginning of the year 1 5 feeble-minded girls were trans- 
ferred by commitment to the Wrentham State School. Com- 
mitments of new cases of similar type have, however, raised the 
percentage to about its former level. There are still at least 50 
girls who properly belong in the schools for the feeble-minded, 
and hope is entertained for further reduction in this number 
w^hen the new buildings at Wrentham are completed. 

One important change was made by devoting Bolton Cottage 
to the use of the mental defectives, thus removing them from 
the school proper, where their presence constituted a grave 
embarrassment to administration. Bolton Cottage has a farm 
of 35 acres which is worked by these girls who find wholesome 
occupation in the various activities and are spared the humilia- 
tion that contact with normal skirls made inevitable. A teacher 



44 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. I). 17. 

is also provided for this cottage and suitable instruction and 
entertainment supplied. Everything possible is done to make 
existence healthful and ha])py. 

Formerly Bolton Cottage was used as the disciplinary imit 
for the girls whose offenses demanded unusual treatment. 
These have now been distributed among the houses in the main 
school, so far with good results. 

The purpose of the school is to determine and remove, if 
possible, the conditions that produce delinquency, and this in- 
volves a careful study of each individual. 

As the numbers indicate, a very large proportion of delin- 
quency among girls is obviously due to mental defect for which 
there is no cure, and the school must serve as a temporary place 
of detention until final disposition by commitment to the proper 
institution is effected. Unfortunately, the number possible of 
commitment to the schools for the feeble-minded has been lim- 
ited by inadequate provision, and the percentage of this class 
has steadily risen. 

Important causes of delinquency in others have been lack 
of proper trainino\ poor home control, and bad environment. 
Patient eff'orts in the pleasant surroundings of the school in the 
formation of regular habits of correct living break down the 
influence of previous bad conditions and provide a foundation 
for the building of character that results in many self-respect- 
ing, good-living young women returning to the community. 

Necessarily some of these girls cannot be permitted to re- 
turn to their own homes upon their release from the school. 
as this would mean exposure to all the conditions that pro- 
duced delinquency. Sometimes it happens that parents are 
aroused by the commitment of their child, and so change their 
way of life as to make the home one in which it would be safe 
for the girl to resume her place. Unfortunately, in too many 
cases the homes do not improve and girls must be placed else- 
where, and the school in its ])arole department must conserve 
the gain made by the girl until she is fully able to care for 
herself or until she reaches her majority, when she automatically 
passes from control. 

The school's duty is to fit the girl to take her place in the 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 45 

community and to fill it adequately and honorably. Therefore 
a girl receives the most careful trainino- in all branches of home 
making and keeping, and is qualified for industrial independ- 
ence when she has completed the course. Academic instruc- 
tion goes hand in hand with practical training, and the girls 
devote several hours a day to attendance at the classes which 
comprehend the usual eight grades. The school building just 
com]deted will furnish for the first time in the history of the 
institution an opportunity to hold all the classes under one roof, 
together with the added advantages of a gymnasium and assem- 
bly hall. 

Formerly some of the girls attended church in the town, but 
this year the practice of having all the services in the school 
chapel was inaugurated and has proved most satisfactory. Be- 
sides the regular Sunday services religious instruction is freely 
given by the clergymen of different denominations supple- 
mented by lay assistants. 

The school is to be commended further for more careful 
grading in the academic work and in the sewdng classes. As a 
result, the system tends more nearly than formerly to advance 
the girl as fast as she shows ability. 

The most important extension of the plant made during the 
year has been the heating unit installed to supply the central 
school building, the chapel, and the infirmary. It replaces 
seven individual furnaces. In addition to this improvement 
the new piggery has been completed and occupied. The new 
central school building was almost ready for occupancy at the 
close of the year. 

AYith an appropriation of $82,288, a total of $82,287.90 was 
expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $37,537.38 was for salaries, wages, and labor; 
all other expenses, $44,750.52. Weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance, computed on expenses less sales and refunds from 
maintenance, $5,274. Total receipts from all sources other 
than the State treasury, $342.99. 'Net cost of maintenance to 
the Commonwealth, $81,944.91. Ratio of daily average num- 
ber of persons employed to daily average number of inmates,

for maintenance in 1915. (See table, page 21.) For detailed

Provides care and schooling for crippled and deformed 
children. 

During the year 312 cases, representing 310 separate chil- 
dren, have been under care. This total is 17 more than in 
1913 and 42 more than in 1912. 

On December 1, 1913, there were 250 children in the school. 
Sixty-two new cases were admitted and 54 discharged during 
the year. The maximum number at any one time was 260, 
the minimum. 196, and the daily average, 249.93, — an increase 
of 14.10 over the preceding year. The average age at time of 
admittance was eight years and ten months. 

One hundred thirteen of the total number at the end of 
the year were suffering from tuberculosis of the bones, 61 were 
crippled from infantile paralysis, and 84 from other forms of 
paralysis, amputation deformities, rickets, and malnutrition. 
I^inety-seven depended upon splints for support in walking. 
78 on crutches, 38 were in plaster casts, and 30 were confined 
to wheel chairs and beds. 

Twenty-one children after an average stay of three years, 
four months, and twenty days were either recovered or so much 
improved that upon discharge they entered the public schools. 
Some of those had never attended school previous to their ad- 
mission to the hospital school, but nearly all had acquired the 
public school standard for their years when discharged, despite 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 47 

the fact that the time spent in chissrooms averaged less than two 
hours daily. Some of those who had attended ]niblic schools 
previous to their admission to the hospital school were enabled 
to join the grades they would have attended had their health 
permitted them to go on with their classes. Five of those dis- 
charged had completed the course and received the diploma, of 
whom four entered the public high school and one a commercial 
college. 

Fourteen, after an average stay of four years, six months, and 
ten days, sought employment when discharged, with a high 
average of success in self-support, 2 being employed at poultry 
raiding and farming, 2 as factory operators, 1 as printer, 1 as 
express messenger, 1 as inspector of work in a factory, 1 as 
assistant in an office, and 1 in domestic service. Another is 
earning partial support as cornetist in an orchestra. 

Of the remaining discharges, 9 were mentally deficient, 1 
developed insanity, 2 were suffering from progressive forms of 
paralysis, 5 were removed at the request of parents, and 3 died. 

Two hundred twelve of the children attend the classes, which 
consist of a subprimary department and the usual eight grades. 
Hours of attendance range from one hour and twenty minutes 
to two hours daily. 'No study out of class is required, although 
not forbidden where it does not adversely affect the health of 
the pupil. The classes are small, making intensive study of 
essentials possible. Thus the child is enabled to keep up with 
children in the community who devote more hours but who do 
not have the advantage gained from instruction given to small 
groups. 

Sport and music are developed and are particularly essential 
to these children for health and educational purposes. The 
boys have a band which is successful culturally and materially, 
as a good number supplement their income by playing after 
their discharge. The girls have a mandolin club and gain in- 
struction and entertainment for themselves and their fellows 
from its activities. 

The stage in the assembly hall has made it possible for many 
dramatic and musical entertainments to be presented during the 
year, and has been a large factor in the happy combination of 



48 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

instruction and enjoyment that lias developed the varied talents 
of the children. 

The nnderlying purpose of the school is to cultivate self- 
reliance along with improved healthy to stimulate competition 
among the children, and to develop normality so that they may 
enter the world stripped of that self-pity and consciousness of 
dependence which is a greater hindrance to development of their 
powers than even their physical disabilities. 

The encouragement of sports is an important factor in the 
program ; and it is a delight to the visitor to find these .children 
romping and playing with as much zest as their more fortunate 
brothers, '•despite the incumbrance of splints and crutches and 
surgical appliances. Coasting, skating, and sliding in the 
winter, and all children's games in their season, are as heartily 
enjoyed here as elsewhere. 

Even organized sports are attempted, and baseball teams play 
with the activity if not the perfection of college teams. Xines 
from the school have frequently met and defeated competitors 
from the near-by town. 

During the year a cow barn has been built and a herd of 
cows purchased, the development of which will, it is hoped, 
protect the supply from the vicissitudes that dependence on 
adjacent farms entails. 

A well has been drilled in bed rock and a supply of water 
obtained at comparatively small cost, which, though not ade- 
quate, is sufficient to supplement the town water and to supply 
pressure in case of fire. 

The new cottage for girls is nearly complete and will be ready 
for occupancy early in the new year. This will complete the 
buildings required to take care of 300 children provided for in 
the original grant, and w^ill be paid for within the limit of the 
original appropriation, despite the fact that the proposition was 
without precedents for guidance, and the costs of material and 
labor have been constantly advancing since the project was 
begmn. 

Out of an appropriation of $82,619.62, a total of $76,679.64 
was expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $32,324.07 was for salaries, wages, and labor;

The Trustees request no special appropriations for the com-

THE STATE TUBERCLLOSIS SANATORIA. 

The Board's supervision of tuberculosis hospitals covers the 
Rutland, Lakeville, Xorth Reading, and Westfield State sana- 
toria, and the tuberculosis wards at the State Infirmary. The 
four separate institutions are administered by one Board of 
Trustees, the Trustees of Hospitals for Consumptives. 

During the year these four institutions treated 2,537 cases, 
with a combined normal capacity of 997 patients, and a daily 
average population of 973.73. 

Of the total number cared for, 936 were in residence at the 
beginning of the year. The 1,601 admissions during the year 
were offset by the 1,490 discharges, leaving 1,047 on Xovem- 
ber 30, 1914. 

Of the 1,601 cases admitted, 255 were classed as incipient;

tubercular; and 16 as undetermined. Xine hundred thirty- 
four were males; 667 females. 

The discharges were classified as follows: disease arrested, 
231; condition improved, 502; condition not improved, 176; 
non-tubercular, 13 ; died, 243 ; unclassified because of shortness 
of stay, 128. Added to this classification, Xorth Reading re- 
ports 19 discharged with disease apparently arrested; 41 with 
disease progressive; and 63 quiescent. Lakeville reports 12 
quiescent, while Westfield reports 44 Avith disease apparently 
arrested and IS quiescent. Thus 796, or 53.4 per cent., of all 
the discharged cases that were considered were sent awav either

The corresponding percentage for last year was 56.1. 

Each year since the opening of the three new sanatoria the 
average length of stay of patients in the fonr institntions has 
been increasing. In 1912 it was 180.25 days; in 1913 it was 
218.5; in 1914 it was 223.25. To be mentioned at the same 
time with this lengthening of the institntion period of care is 
the follow-np work which the Trnstees have been developing 
throngh a follow-up nnrse. 

Separate report is not made upon the tuberculosis department 
of the State Infirmary. It is considered under the general 
heading of the State Infirmary, at page 25 ante. The four

expenditures, see pages 64-75. 

Last year the Trustees requested an appropriation of $35,000 
with which to establish an independent water supply for this 
institution. This request having been refused the Trustees 
have entered into a new contract with the town of Rutland, by 
which water is to be supjilied to the institution at a rate of 10 
cents per 1,000 gallons instead of 12 cents as heretofore. In 
addition, the small meters scattered throiigh the several depart- 
ments have been replaced by one large meter near the institution 
intake. Greater vigilance and stricter measures have also been 
maintained with a very considerable saving in the number of 
gallons consumed. 

Aside from a new poultry plant and a small building to house 
fire engine and hose no special improvements of consequence 
have been undertaken during the year. The Trustees make 
no requests for special ai)propriations for 1915.

tion during the year has included a small building containing 
pasteurizing plant and grease-rendering apparatus. In addi- 
tion, some further development of the sewerage system and the 
walks has been accomplished. For the coming year the Trus- 
tees ask an appropriation of $1,400, with which to construct 
sufficient summer houses to accommodate 18 patients. These 
buildings are intended as substitutes for tents now in use. It is 
calculated that considerable saying will result from this im- 
proyement.

for maintenance in 1915 (see table, page 21). For detailed 
analysis of receipts and expenditures, see pages 61—77. 

xVdditions to the administration building authorized last year 
are now finished. These provide additional refrigeration and 
bakery facilities. Some improvement in the system of sewage 
disposal has also been effected. 

The Trustees repeat their requests of last year and the year 
preceding for an indej^endent milk supply and facilities for 
handling coal. The itemization of all the requests for special 
appropriations is as follows: — 

Land and equipment for dairy : — 

Land, 60 acres, with two-tenement house and 

two barns $5,000 00 

Sixty cows 6,000 00 

Cow barns, 68 stalls, milk room and silos . 6,000 00 

Repairing old buildings 1,300 00 

$18,300 00 

Coal trestle 2.500 00 

Land for same 1,500 00 

$22,300 00 

There can be no question of the ultimate economy of building 
a coal trestle. Xeither is there question of the wisdom of an 
independent milk supply. The investment would be more than 
saved in the end, while the institution would be rendered inde- 
pendent of terms and requirements imposed at the pleasure of 
citizens controlling the supply.

The Trustees estimate the sum of $124,810.40 for mainte-

The children's ward, with a capacity of 70 beds, was opened 
in March, thus greatly relieving the pressure for separate ac- 
commodation. This improvement is not extensive enough to 
reduce the children's waiting list, which has continued through- 
out the year. 

One of the chief concerns in the development of this insti- 
tution has been the school. It began in 1912 with 12 pupils in 
attendance. In 1914 the attendance reached 65. The facilities 
under which the school has been developed have been very 
poor. A recreation room off the main dining hall and over the 
carpenter shop has been the only classroom down to the open- 
ing of the children's ward. The ]dayroom in this new build- 
ing is now used in addition to the recreation room. Both 
places are noisy, in particular the recreation room, where the 
machinery in the carpenter shop and the commotion of a large 
dining room ]u-eclude the quiet necessary to school classes. To 
relieve these difficulties, and to take care of considerable future 
increase in the number of children of school age who are to 
come to this institution, the Trustees ask a special approprigf- 
tion of $13,725 for the erection and equipment of a central 
school building. 

The Trustees request $2,000 for the installation of a new 
150 horse-power boiler, to provide sufficient duplication of the 
power unit to insure safety, and $1,000 for a dairy room.

care. This total is 2 less than last year and but 2 more than 
in 1912. All of the "patients cared for were in residence at 
the beginning of the year. One has died during the year and 
one has been released. 

Of the patients remaining in the hospital at the close of the 
year J 10 were suffering from the disease in the tubercular 
form, 1 in the anaesthetic^ and 2 in the mixed forms. Six are 
known to liave had other communicable diseases before coming 
to the hospital. Of this number, 4 had smallpox. The 
average age of the patients Avas thirty-eight years six months ; 
8 were married; 4 of the total were females. All of the pa- 
tients were of foreign race and nationality. The races repre- 
sented are as follows : Italian, 1 ; Portuguese, 5 ; Chinese, 4 ; 
Russian, 3 ; Lettish, 1 ; Japanese, 1. 

Progress made in the laboratory this year is worthy of special 
notice. Dr. James A. Honeij, resident physician, working 
under Dr. Parker, our superintendent, and in collaboration with 
Dr. S. B. Wolbach of the Harvard Medical Faculty, has devel- 
oped his study of the pathology of this disease to the point where 
valuable results are at hand. Since the pathological research 
was begun the following articles have been published by Drs. 
Wolbach and Honeij : ^' A Critical Review of the Bacteriology 
of Human and Rat Leprosy," Wolbach and Honeij (J. Med. 
Research, Vol. XXIX., Xo. 3, 55 pp., January, 1914) ; " Lep-

The most important improvement made during the year was 
the small laundry constructed and equipped from emergency 
funds at a total expense to date of $1,115.97. 



58 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

For the coming year it will be necessary to renew much of 
the piping in the old hospital building. Rearrangements in this 
same building are also contemplated in order to provide living 
quarters for employees who work in the main kitchen. 

The Board renews its request of last year for a modern hos- 
pital and dis}>ensary building. — a one-story structure designed 
to assemble the cleansing and treatment of all patients under 
one roof. It is impossible with present facilities to afford the 
patients proj>er hospital care or to safeguard nurses and attend- 
ants from undue exposure to contagion while performing their 
duties. 

This building would also provide beds for terminal cases, and 
can be erected and equipped at an estimated cost not to exceed 
$J:0.000. The Board requests that this amount be appropriated. 

With an appropriation of $28,000, a total of $27,998.69 was 
expended for the maintenance of this institution. Of the 
amount expended, $11,546.35 was for salaries, wages, and labor ; 
all other expenses, $16,452.34. Ratio of daily average number 
of persons employed to daily average number of inmates. 1.3

FIXAXCIAL ADMIXISTRATIOX OF IXSTITUTIOXS. 

The Board in its supervision of the financial administration 
of the several State charitable institutions — the plant and its 
upkeep and maintenance — inspects each institution through 
paid officers at least once each month, and through its own com- 
mittees and individual members at frequent intervals. 

Monthly analysis is made of all articles of food, coal, hay, and 
grain purchased, and tabulated results sent to each institution. 
In addition, sundry tables covering the year's operations have 
been prepared. 

The following tables are desigued to show in detail the finan- 
cial condition of each institution. A convenient summary of 
the State's property represented by each institution is followed 
by an analysis of receipts and a similar analysis of expenditures. 
Finally, a detailed analysis of expenditures is followed by a 
comparison of all appropriations and the expenditures made 
therefrom.

11. Receipts. 
Table V. is designed to show every item of income to each 
institution from whatever source for whatever purj^ose, excei^t- 
ing certain private funds, casting all together for ready com- 
parison. The tabulation also shows such of the receipts as 
imder the law are available for maintenance purposes in 1915. 
According to this table the total receipts from all sources were 
$2,527,021.90. Of this amount, $2,326,773.86 was received 
from the State treasury, and the remainder, $200,248.01, came 
in on account of the institution, through board of patients, sale 
of products, or otherwise. Of this latter figure, $158,402.51 is 
available for maintenance purposes in 1915.

Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 65 

III. Expenditures. 

Table VL, divided into four parts, shows all expenditures of 
whatever nature on account of the several institutions. Part L 
deals with maintenance only. Part II. exhibits outlays for 
special purposes, divided into four headings, namely, " land," 
'' buildings," '^ furnishings and equipment/' and ^' miscellane- 
ous." In Part III. are shown all moneys expended for pur- 
poses so far apart from the institution proper as to fall outside 
the uniform classifications. With two exceptions, Trustees' ex- 
penses appear in the miscellaneous column under '' mainte- 
nance." These two exceptions are expenses for the Trustees 
of the training schools and of the Trustees in charge of the State 
sanatoria. Because of various duties these two Boards of Trus- 
tees have appropriations apart from the grants for their institu- 
tions. Part III., in addition to these special outlays, shows 
also the industries fund administered by the Trustees in charge 
of the State Farm. This fund is self-perpetuating, and, though 
a State outlay, is so far separate as to require individual treat- 
ment in the classification. Part IV. summarizes the whole. 

The table shows that $1,811,134.44 was spent for mainte- 
nance exclusive of expenditures for special purposes mentioned 
in Part IL, which amounted to $333,864.65. By adding to 
these amounts $181,774.77 for sundry expenditures, as shown 
in Part III., we find a grand total of $2,326,773.86 expended 
on account of the twelve institutions. 

In addition to the total expenditures as indicated above, two 
institutions — Lyman School and the Industrial School for 
Girls — have private trust funds which are administered for tbe 
benefit of inmates, but independently of the State's investment. 
The custody of each is vested in the State Treasurer, whose 
duty it is to invest the same and to pay therefrom at the request 
of the Trustees. Three of those trusts — the Lyman fund, the 
Lyman Trust fund, and the Lamb fund — apply to Lyman 
School, while the Fay, the Mary Lamb, and the Rogers School 
funds pertain to the Industrial School for Girls. From these 
sources a total of $2,289.86 was expended during the year, of 
which $38.85 was for books out of the Rogers fund, and the 



66 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

balance from the Lyman Trust and Marv Lamb funds. The 
major part of the outlay was for entertainments, drill and band 
equipment, athletic goods, lectures, prizes, and similar miscel- 
laneous items. 

IV. Analysis of Maixtexance axd Xet Per Capita. 
The uniform analysis of maintenance expenditures comprises 
eight classes of divisions, namely, ^^ salaries, wages, and labor ; '' 
^' food ; " ^' clothing and clothing materials ; " " furnishings ; " 
" heat, light, and power ; " '^ repairs and improvements ; " 
" farm, stable, and grounds ; " and " miscellaneous." Table 
VII. is correspondingly divided into, eight parts, with a sum- 
mary, and shows for each of the twelve institutions the total cost 
of maintenance for each of the main headings in the analysis. 
It further shows all receipts from sales or refunds ; the differ- 
ence, which is the net cost to the institution; and the average 
net weekly per capita cost to the institution, with a column 
showing the corresponding per capita for the three-year period 
just ended.

76 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

V. CoMPARisox OF Appeopkiatioxs ax'd Expexditukes 

THEEEFEO:Nr. 

Table VIII. affords comparison of appropriations for mainte- 
nance with the resj^ective amounts expended therefrom. Appro- 
priations are classified as " receipts available for maintenance," 
and ** appropriations in addition to such receipts.'' All re- 
ceipts at the four sanatoria, the Hospital School^ and the Xor- 
folk State Hospital, though turned, like receipts of all the other 
institutions, into the State treasiuy. are by law applicable to 
maintenance in the succeeding year. Receipts at the remaining 
institutions are not so applied. By this comparison the total 
maintenance expenditures exceeded the total appropriations by 
$1,491.54. that amount representing the net deficit. Balances 
covered back into the treasury from all the several appropria- 
tions totalled $8,215.17. Inasmuch as this sum by such rever- 
sion ceases to be available for institutional purposes, the equiva- 
lent should be added to the deficiency just stated in order to 
^how the apparent deficit which must be met by additional ap- 
propriations. This apparent deficit totals $9,736.71. The 
heaviest deficit was incurred at the Rutland State Sanatorium. 

Receipts of 1913 available for maintenance in 1914 totalled 
$147,662.65. This siun was received largely on account of 
board of patients at the State sanatoria and the Hospital School.

78 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17 



VI. Appropeiatioxs for Special Purposes. 
The total of appropriations for special purposes during 1914, 
as shown bv Table IX., was $106,650.43. In addition to this 
amount the several institutions began the year with a total of 
$320,153.91 unexpended balance on previous sj^ecial appropria- 
tions. The grand total available for 1914 was, therefore, $426,- 
804.34. The amount expended from this total was $333,864.65, 
leaving an unexpended balance of $92,939.69, of which $88,- 
126.05 will be available in 1915. The small remainder of 
$4,813.64 reverts to the State treasury.

80 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

VII. Net Cost to tjie Commonwealth. 
The net cost to the State of maintaining or conducting each 
institution is the difference between total expenditure and the 
total receipts from all sources other than the State treasury. 
This total outlay must cover all moneys spent for maintenance 
and special purposes, together with all expenditures for sundry 
purposes apart from the institution, and interest on outstanding 
bonds. These items are compared in Table X. For con- 
venience, the daily average number of inmates and the net 
weekly per capita cost to the State are added. This tabulation 
shows a daily average number of inmates of 7,399.63, and ex- 
penditures for all purposes of $2,399,989.01. Total receipts 
from institutions, i.e., sources other than the State treasury, 
amounted to $200,248.04. The net cost to the State for all 
twelve institutions amounted to $2,199,740.97, making the net 
weekly per capita cost to the State $5,701.

82 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. L). 1 



VIII. AXALYSTS OF PaY RolL. 

Table XL, divided into six parts, shows a comparative 
analysis of the pay roll for each of the twelve institutions. The 
first five parts divide service into five classes, namely, '^ general 
administration," '^ medical service," " ward service," ^' repairs 
and improvements," and " farm, stable, and grounds." Part six 
summarizes the whole. The table also shows the full roster, 
that is, the number of employees deemed necessary to carry on 
the institution efficiently, and in an opposite column the daily 
average number employed, with the same average for the three- 
year period ending Xovember 30, 1913. The same treatment is 
given the average monthly compensation and the weekly per 
capita cost. Thus it appears that the full roster for all the in- 
stitutions together was 1,388. The total average number em- 
ployed was 1,341.15, while for the three-year period preceding 
1911: it was 1,161.87. The total average monthly compensation 
paid was $552,981 as against $518,395 in the preceding three- 
year period. Miscellaneous and incidental employment not 
entered upon the pay rolls of the institutions does not appear 
in this tabulation. The number of inmates to one employee re- 
mains about as before.

Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 89 

THE COUNTY TRAINING SCHOOLS. 

In compliance Avitli the provisions of cliapter 46, section 2, of 
the Revised Laws,^ the Board's officers have visited each of the 
five county training schools and submit the following report. 
The schools are : — 

Essex Count}' Training School, Lawrence. 
Hampden County Training School, Springfield. 
Middlesex County Training School, North Chelmsford. 
Norfolk, Bristol and Plymouth L^nion Training School, "Walpole. 
Worcester County Training School, Oakdale (West Boylston). 

The Suffolk County Training School, in Roxbury, was closed 
during the year. 

The accompanying table shows the numbers and movement of 
population in these schools during the fiscal year ending Xovem- 
ber 30, 1914, and also the average weekly per capita cost of 
maintenance of each institution during that time. 

As will be seen from the table, there were 622 boys in the 5 
schools during 1914. The year opened with 456 boys. During 
the succeeding twelve months, 166 were admitted and 243 were 
discharged or paroled, leaving 379 on November 30, 1914.- 

The average age at time of admission was eleven years and 
nine months. The law raising the school age to sixteen years, 
which went into effect in September, 1913, appears to have made 
little difterence in the number of committals of older boys, ex- 
cept in the Hampden County School, Avhich received 10 boys 
of fifteen years of age or over, out of a total of 48 new commit- 
ments. 

1 "County truant schools shall be subject to visitation by the board of education and by the 
state board of charity and said boards shall report thereon annually to the general court."

Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 91 

All inquiry into the average length of term of the boys in 
these schools showed that of the 39 boys in the Hampden County 
institution on the day of inspection none had been there for a 
longer period than one year. 

In the four other institutions about 30 per cent, of the^ boys 
at the time of inspection had been in the schools for two years 
or more; 15 per cent, for three years or over; 8 per cent, for 
four years or more ; and 3 per cent, for five years or more. A 
number of the boys who have no homes of their own, and who 
have been in the schools since 1909 and 1910, are considered 
by the superintendents to be placeable boys, but foster homes 
have not yet been obtained for them. 

An examination of the records of boys paroled from the Mid- 
dlesex school during 1913 showed that the average length of 
detention was two years, eight months, as compared with four 
years + in 1912. The average length of detention of boys 
paroled from the four other institutions in the past two years 
(during which period no change of policy has occurred) was 
as follows : Essex school, two years, three months ; Worcester 
school, one year, nine months; ISTorfolk school, one year, three 
months; Hampden school, seven months, twenty-one days. 

Boys under sixteen are paroled from the Essex, Norfolk, 
and Worcester schools by the county commissioners when the 
superintendents of the aforesaid institutions, in their discre- 
tion, so recommend. In these schools good marks bring in- 
creased privileges and often hasten the time of discharge. In 
the two • other schools boys are parolled automatically, when 
they acquire a stated number of merits. Since other questions, 
such as the kind of home waiting to receive the boy, enter into 
the matter of parole, the plan of sending him home as soon as 
he has earned his merits seems inelastic. 

As a rule, the different schools receive no information in re- 
gard to boys committed to their care except the small amount 
which is contained in the mittimus. The superintendents must 
therefore gain much of the knowledge they may possess about 
the boys piecemeal, after admission, as they have no time to 
make thorough investigations. A study of some of the records 
which contain more detailed information leads one to believe 



92 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. I). 17. 

that a number of the boys may be feeble-minded. A numlx^r 
have been arrested for breaking and entering, larceny, and other 
crimes. Most of them come from poor homes, and give every 
indication of having been underfed and generally neglected be- 
fore .their admission. A large proportion of them have used 
tobacco in some form. One institution has received, durins; the 
past five years, 2 boys each from 18 families, 3 boys from one 
family, and 4 boys from another family. These figures indicate 
that bad conditions in the home tend largely to create much of 
the delinquency charged against these boys. 

A full investigation of the boys' histories and home conditions 
by the probation officers, while their cases are befpre the court, 
should prove valuable to judges interested in devising the best 
plan for the solution of individual problems; to the superin- 
tendents of the training schools in dealing with boys committed 
to their institutions ; and to the county commissioners in de- 
termining the advisability of parole. 

The Worcester County commissioners employ a private 
society to make such an investigation, and its reports are con- 
sulted by them in connection with applications for parole. 

The Middlesex County commissioners have employed a parole 
officer since January, 1914, to visit boys paroled from their in- 
stitution. With this exception, the parole system in these 
schools is weak. In many cases boys are taken from bad homes 
and maintained in the training schools for a certain period, 
only to be sent back to the ^'ery conditions and among the same 
people Avho were the chief cause of their delinquency. Others 
are kept indefinitely in the school because busy superintendents 
cannot take time from their work to find suitable places for 
them. 

Xot all the schools require a medical examination of new 
boys, and none, with the exception of the Middlesex school, has 
instituted regular medical inspections. Taking the schools as 
a whole, the physical condition of a majority of the boys at the 
time of commitment is undoubtedly poor. Many of them are 
undersized and anaemic in appearance, and are plainly suffering 
from the results of nealect, underfeedins:, and bad habits. The 
need of systematic medical care and supervision is therefore 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 93 

great. For the same reason, the boys would be benefited by 
intelligent phy'sical traiiiing and organized play under the direc- 
tion of qualified instructors. 

Only one of the schools (that in Middlesex County) has 
adopted the cottage system. As the boys vaiy in age from seven 
to sixteen years, and represent all degrees of experience, from 
the young child whose presence in the school is largely due to 
poverty or neglect, to the degenerate youth who has been before 
the court many times on criminal charges, the futility of 
handling them all in one large group is apparent. Only by the 
most careful classification can the more innocent boys be kept 
from dropping to the lower moral standard of the rest. 

In the Essex, Middlesex, and Worcester schools the boys get 
practical carpentry and repair Avork. Those in the first-named 
institution also have instruction in printing, make and repair 
all the boots, shoes, and slippers used, and are to knit all the 
stockings for the inmates as soon as the necessary machinery is 
installed. In the Hampden and Xorfolk County schools there" 
is neither manual nor industrial training. These two institu- 
tions have all-day sessions for the boys, varied Avith chores in 
and outside the house, before and after school hours. The other 
schools hold one session. A good deal of time consumed in 
several of the institutions in waxing floors might better be de- 
voted to industrial training. 

In conclusion, the following standards of efficient care might 
well be observed in the management of the training schools, so 
long as the several counties see fit to maintain them. Thus: — 

(1) There should be a complete separation of the younger 
from the older boys, regardless of the increased cost of the cot- 
tage plan in dollars and cents. The commingling of the boys in 
one group must result in moral harm to the younger ones in 
spite of the closest supervision. 

(2) Each boy, upon entrance, should be examined by a physi- 
cian and should be given medical care if necessary. A regidar 
medical inspection of all the boys should be made at least once 
a year, and dental examinations at least once in six months. 
The enterino' bovs should have a mental examination in order 



94 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

that those found to Ije feeble-minded may be transferred to 
proper institutions. 

(3) The dietary should be sufficiently abundant and varied, 
particularly in milk and meat, to keep the boys well nourished. 
Green vegetables might be raised by the pupils in their own 
garden plots and sold to the school^ which would give them an 
opportunity to earn and expend money as well as enrich the bill 
of fare. The gToups at the tables should be small and a reason- 
able amount of conversation should be allowed. 

(■i) Xearly all these boys are behind in their grades. Pre- 
sumably one of the objects in committing truants and school 
offenders to the training schools is to remedy backwardness in 
studies. It follows, therefore, that the teachers employed should 
be thoroughly competent to teach backward children, and that 
the groups should be small enough to permit of much individual 
work. The subjects should be taught by methods which would 
relate them as much as possible to the rest of the work ; arithme- 
tic, especially, would lend itself to such treatment. The school 
work would thus become more interesting and useful. 

(5) A good system of industrial training should be intro- 
duced for the older boys. The majority of the boys now in the 
five schools who are between fifteen and sixteen years of age 
must shortly be discharged without any special training which 
vrill make it easier for them to become self-supporting. 

If the time given to waxing floors and other work, which is 
invented largely to keep the boys busy and exercised, were de- 
voted to industrial training, the boys would benefit and the in- 
stitutions would not suffer greatly. 

(6) The boys should receive good physical training under 
leaders skilled in boys' club work, who could organize and super- 
vise their play as well as their exercise. The physical labor 
which the boys perform is not a good substitute for an intelli- 
gent system of physical development which they need. 

(7) Marks for good conduct should give the boy certain privi- 
leges and not automatically procure his release. Release should 
depend partly upon progress and partly upon the certainty that 
he will go into a good home. 

(8^ Adequate machinery should be provided which will in- 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 95 

sure the investigation of the home before the bov is returned to 
it ; the finding of a home when necessary ; and a friendly over- 
sight of the boy while on parole and until he is on his feet. 

(9) Finally, more careful case work is needed in the courts 
from which these bojs are committed. Careful investigation 
bv competent probation officers would disclose many cases, espe- 
cially among the younger children, where appropriate aid and 
oversight in the family, or the placement of "the child in another 
home, would prevent committal to the training school. Others, 
again, who are feeble-minded, would receive proper care, in- 
stead of relegation to these schools in appreciable numbers. 
And, further, when a case for institutional training did come 
before the court he would not be sent to an institution unless it 
were equipped to give the care and training which would tend 
to make him a useful citizen. 

The adoption by the county commissioners of modern 
methods in the management of these five training schools would 
assist the superintendents to make the most of the system of 
county institutional care. The system, however, is not in ac- 
cord with the best accepted methods in the care and protection 
of children, in spite of the efforts of loyal and efficient superin- 
tendents to adapt it to their problem.

The law provides that the State Board of Charity may visit

not only all children who are maintained by the Common- 
wealth, but all minor children who are supported at the expense 
of any city or town. Children illegally retained in city or 
town almshouses, — i.e^., pauper children over two years of age, 
or, if the mothers are inmates, over three years of age, and not

Sectiox 39. Overseers of the poor shall keep full and accurate 
recordSj in a form prescribed by the state board of charity, of the 
paupers fully supported, the persons relieved and partially sup- 
ported, and the travellers and vagrants lodged at the expense of 
their cities and towns and of the amount paid for such support and 
relief. 

Section 40. They shall annually in April, for the year ending 
on the last day of March, return to the state board of charity the 
number of such persons supported and relieved, the cost thereof, 
and a record of those fully supported. 

Section" 41. In the year nineteen hundred and five and in every 
tenth year thereafter the return of the overseers of the poor shall 
contain true and correct answers to such additional inquiries as the 
state board of charity may deem it advisable to make. 

Sectiox 42. If the overseers of the poor of a city or town re- 
fuse or neglect to comply with the requirements of the three pre- 
ceding sections, such city or town shall forfeit one dollar for each 
day's neglect, and the amount of such forfeiture shall be deducted 
from any amount to which said city or town may be entitled in 
reimbursement for relief of state paupers as provided in sections 
fifteen and sixteen of chapter eighty-five ; and if no such reimburse- 
ment shall be due to said city or town, the forfeiture shall be de- 
ducted from any money which may be due to it from the Common- 
wealth. 

Under these laws the Board reported to the Treasurer of tlie 
Commonwealth the names of the cities and towns that failed 
to make their pauper returns during the month of April. 1914.

SUPERYISIOX OF MOTHERS' AID. 

Under the provisions of section 5, chapter 763, Acts of 1913, 
the State Board of Charity is required in its annual report to 
the Legislature to make : — 

.\. — A report on the work done by its own agents and by the 
Overseers of the Poor in respect to such families, any of whose 
members are ivWiout legal settlement in the Commonwealth. 

B. — A separate re]^ort on the work done by the Overseers 
in respect to such families all of whose members have a legal 
settlement in the Commonwealth. 

In accordance with the foregoing requirements the following 
report is submitted : — 

A. — Families wiTHorx Legal Settlement. 

During the year December 1, 1913, to Xovember 30. 1914, 
180 notices were received from 46 cities and towns, including 
127 widows with 385 dependent children under fourteen years, 
and 53 not widov/s with 145 dependent children under fourteen 
years, making a total of 180 mothers with 530 children. 

In these families, besides the dependent children under four- 
teen years of age, there were many children over foiu'teen who 
worked and contributed to the support of their families. Many 
children between the ages of fourteen and sixteen, however, 
were undersized and delicate ; and while they were able to attend 
school, they were not able to work steadily in a shop or mercan- 
tile establishment. Moreover, comparatively few robust chil- 
dren between the ages of fourteen and sixteen were able to 
secure regular and profitable employment. Consequently, 
manv such children were oblia'ed to remain at school, either be- 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 101 

cause they were physically unable to work or because they were 
unable to secure work. 

Mothers' aid is available only as long as the child is compelled 
by law to attend school (i.e., until he is fourteen). Theoreti- 
cally, a child of fourteen is expected to work and to contribute 
to the support of his family; but practically few children are 
physically able to work and few are able to secure profitable 
employment until they reach the age of sixteen. It seems ad- 
visable, therefore, to amend the present law so as to make moth- 
ers' aid available for mothers with dependent children imder 
sixteen years of age. 

One hundred and eleven of the ISO cases above mentioned 
have been visited and reported upon by the women visitors em- 
ployed by the State Board of Charity, and approximately SO 
per cent, of the cases have been approved for reimbursement. 

Xinety-eight of these families had been aided by the Over- 
seers of the Poor in their homes previous to the enactment of 
the mothers' aid law. A special study of these cases is being 
made to see whether mothers' aid has improved their condition. 

The amount of mothers' aid per family is based upon the 
needs of the particular family, and varies from $1.50 to $15 
a week. The overseers are required to make a careful investi- 
gation as to the resources of the family. They must exhaust 
all sources of family income before granting mothers' aid, which 
was intended never to supplant any proper source of income 
but rather to supplement all available aid. 

In size the average family aided consists of a mother 
and three dependent children under fourteen years of age. The 
average amount of mothers' aid furnished such a family (in 
addition to its income from other sources) was $6 a week. 

It appears from the year's experience that the overseers of the 
poor are apt to be more generous in granting relief in State cases 
(for which the State reimburses the whole amount of aid ren- 
dered) than they are in settled cases (for which the State reim- 
burses one-third of the aid rendered), and are usually more

102 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

B. — Families with Legal Settlement. 

During the year December 1, 1913, to November 30, 1914, 
1,484 notices were received from 144 cities and towns, including 
1,126 widows with 3,320 dependent children under fourteen 
years, and 358 not widows with 1,148 dependent children under 
fourteen years, making a total of 1,484 mothers with 4,468 
children. 

There are many children over fourteen years of age in these 
families for whom the overseers must try to find suitable em- 
ployment or medical treatment where needed, for the mothers' 
aid problem takes- into consideration every member of the 
family. Indeed, the family is the unit with which the overseer 
must deal, and not merely that part of the family that is made 
up of the mother and the children under fourteen. Some over- 
seers still believe that they should not concern themselves about 
the older children except to see that they contribute their earn- 
ings to the family budget; but the law says that the overseer 
must see that the other members of the household, and the sur- 
roundings of the home, are such as make for good character ; 
that the overseers shall press all members of the family who are 
able to work, other than the mother and her dependent children, 
to secure work ; and that they shall try to secure work for them. 

Of the 1,484 cases here mentioned, the State visitors visited 
and reported upon 600. Approximately 80 per cent, of the 
cases reviewed have been approved. 

About 43 per cent, of these families had been aided hj the 
overseers in their homes previous to the enactment of the 
mothers' aid law. The weekly amount of aid given by the 
overseers under the mothers' aid law was almost without ex- 
ception much greater than that given under the other relief laws. 
As a result of the study now under way it will be interesting to 
see whether there has been improvement in the family conditions 
in proportion to the increase of aid in these families. 

It is interesting to note that where the Board has disapproved 
mothers' aid for a given case, and the overseers have continued 
to aid the family under some other relief law, the amount of 
aid under temporary relief has been considerably less than that 
under the mothers' aid law. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 103 

The questiou of reimbursement looms large in the overseers' 
consideration of all of the mothers' aid cases. Seldom do they, 
waiving reimbursement, continue to aid after the supervisory 
board has declined to approve reimbursement for the aid ren- 
dered. Often, fearing that a certain case may not meet with the 
approval of this Board, they request that a State visitor investi- 
gate a given case before they aid it. Under the law the over- 
seers alone have the right to initiate aid. The responsibility 
of making a thoroucrh investia'ation before aidino- rests with 
them, and while the supervisory board is ready to advise as to 
the best course to pursue in cases involving property, or in an 
especially perplexing case, it feels that ordinarily the overseers 
should decide for themselves. Section 2 states, " nothing herein 
contained shall be construed to prevent the overseers from giving 
prompt and suitable temjDorary aid hereunder, pending com- 
pliance VN'ith the requirements of this section." A worthy 
mother and her children should not be made to suffer while 
the town of residence and the town of legal settlement dispute 
over a technical question of settlement. The question of need 
should be paramount to that of reimbursement. 

It is sometimes contended by overseers that the State Board, 
even though it refuses the case, should allow reimbursement 
from the date of first notice up to the time of such refusal. It 
is the obvious intent of the statute, however, that the overseer 
must contemplate refusal if his case be misconceived or the aid 
ill-advised. Assuming the full responsibility, as he must, he 
is the more apt to investigate the claims of his applicants with 
special care. 

Careful investigation of every case is absolutely necessary. 
The overseers of the large cities have been forced to employ 
trained investigators to visit the applicants in their homes, and 
to attend to the innumerable details of the case-work required 
imder this law. The fact that there is no stated per capita 
allowance, and the further fact that each case is treated as an 
intensely individual problem to be worked out upon its o^m 
lines, make the perfunctory handling of these cases practically 
impossible. The overseer must visit the homes, the hospitals, 
the courts, the schools, and the factories where members of 
these families or persons interested in them may be found. 



104 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The requirements camiot be met by disi^ensiug a mere pittance 
that cannot possibly relieve the large necessity. Adequate re- 
lief available under this law, together with State supervision 
of the work done, has made it necessary for the overseers to 
discriminate carefully between the worthy and the unworthy. 

It is gratifying to note marked improvement in the kind of 
work done by the Overseers of the Poor throughout the State, 
and a steady growth in co-operation between the overseers and 
the supervisory board. ALoreover, encouraging accounts of im- 
proved family conditions in the mothers' aid homes are shown 
on the quarterly reports of the overseers. 

But there is still much room for improvement. The tech- 
nique of public relief -giving is yet to be developed. Of the 22 
States having mothers' aid laws in operation, Massachusetts is 
the only State that administers this aid as an extension of the 
outdoor relief system through the Overseers of the Poor. Since 
mothers' aid is relief it seems logical to administer it through 
the Overseers of the Poor, who are the regularly appointed re- 
lief officers throughout the State. The success of the system 
lies chiefly in the hands of the overseers themselves. It is 
necessary for the overseers of certain sections to meet often, to 
study their common problems, and to he\-p each other to solve 
them, and it is necessary for the supervisory board to meet 
and confer with these gi'oups of overseers. During the year 
several such meetings were held in Boston, in Springfield, and 
ill TTorcester. Moreover, it is necessary in each community 
for the local public relief officers and the representatives of 
private charities to meet as fellow-citizens, to discuss such 
problems as public health, education, and relief for the needy. 

This year, as last, bills were introduced in the Legislature 
aiming to take the administration of the mothers' aid law from 
the Overseers of the Poor, and its supervision from the State 
Board of Charity, giving it into the hands of a commission 
whose paid assistants would be accountable to the commis- 
sioners. The petitioners in each case have been given leave to 
withdraw. 

At the hearings the administration of the law by the local 
overseers was criticized more than the law itself. ATany peo- 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 105 

pie object to tlie manner in which the applicants for mothers' 
aid receive their aid. It would be possible for the overseers 
to appoint a " mothers' aid secretary," who could receive the 
applicants in a room apart from all other applicants. It would 
be possible to send cash aid by registered letter, thus often 
saving a tired mother a long journey. The worthy applicant 
for mothers' aid is entitled to every consideration at the hands 
of the overseers. The Board hopes to see continued growth 
along these lines. 

The overseer who still insists upon sending groceries of his 
own selection in a team marked '' Overseers of the Poor " to 
the home of a thrifty v/orthy mother who, through accident or 
disease, has been deprived of the natural means of support for 
herself and her dependent children, mistakes the spirit of the 
mothers' aid law; so much so that an awakened public opinion 
will eventually call him to account. 

The policies adopted by this Board in its administration of 
the statute have been revised, and are, in their present form, 
as follows : — 

1. Aid granted should be of the kind best adapted to the needs 
of the individual family. In many cases a partial allowance of 
cash is desirable; but we would suggest that only in cases where 
the mother is intelligent and judicious should the full allowance be 
in cash. Cash allowances should be granted weekly, never monthly. 

2. If there is illness in a family receiving relief under the pro- 
visions of chapter 763, Acts of 1913, which is temporary, requiring 
only medicine or a few doctor's visits, the medical relief or medicine 
should be granted under the provisions of the said act; but in cases 
of long-continued illness or illness requiring hospital treatment, 
notice should be sent under the provisions of section 14, chapter 
85, Revised Laws. Reimbursement by the Commonwealth for medi- 
cal attendance in the home will be made in accordance with the pro- 
visions of chapter 292, Acts of 1909. 

3. Section 4 provides in part : " This act shall apply to all mothers 
and their dependent children, whether or not they or any of them 
may have a settlement within the commonwealth, who shall have 
resided in the commonwealth not less than three years." Families 
who have not resided in the Commonwealth for three years subse- 
quent to September 1, 1910, should not be considered as coming 
within the provisions of the act. If such a rule were not established. 



lUG STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

many families^ who were residents of Massachusetts years ago would 
return from other States for the express purpose of becoming bene- 
ficiaries under the act. 

4. The law contemplates aid for families under a constructive 
plan for a definite period, or until such time as the dependent 
children have attained the age of fourteen years. Although the 
law provides relief and not pensions, the idea that animated its pas- 
sage was that of granting to dependent mothers an income on which 
they may count while their children are below working age. The 
need which was urged before the Legislature, the illustrative cases 
brought forward to emphasize that need, were both such as would 
continue tlirough a period of years. Such a "regular allowance 
differs from most material relief in other particulars than in the 
size, or even the regularity, of the relief. It represents a settled 
plan requiring a specified sum per week, the mother being informed 
of the plan, relieved from worry, and thus put in a position to 
adjust her expenses to her income."^ It seems wise for the present 
to consider only such cases as will, according to your best judgment, 
require relief for at least a period of one year. Other cases can be 
handled by private charities, by churches, or under the Temporary 
Aid Law. 

0. It is important that the law should not relieve deserting hus- 
bands of the responsibility of providing for their families. The 
Board deems it unwise to consider an application under this act 
until after one year has elapsed since the desertion occurred, and 
the mother has shown her desire to co-operate with the relief 
agencies by requesting the court to issue a warrant for non-support 
under the provisions of chapter 456, Acts of 1911, and amendments 
thereto. Where the husband has been abusive it seems wise to ask 
the relief agencies rather than the wife to apply for a warrant for 
the man's arrest. 

6. The mother should not discontinue her employment unless it 
is apparent her health is being impaired, or the children require 
more personal supervision. In many instances it may be desirable 
to arrange for a different kind of employment or discontinuance of 
service for a portion of the week. There are undoubtedly relatives 
or other reliable persons living with many of these families who 
can give the dependent children proper attention during the 
mother's absence. To insist that the mother shall not work, re- 
gardless of home conditions, would tend to discourage that desire 
for thrift and independence which is an essential element in society. 
The policy should be stimulative and constructive rather than de- 
structive. Because competent medical advice is essential to effective 
planning for cases which represent themselves unable to work, it 
seems wise to require of the overseers a reputable physician's certifi- 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 107 

cate, before accepting the statement of an applicant for mothers' 
aid, that she or any other "member of the family who is of working 
age is physically unable to work, and also to require a physician's 
statement embodying a suggestion as to the particular medical need 
of any member of the family who is reported to be ill. 

7. The Board suggests that before granting aid to any mother 
with illegitimate children, the overseers consult with the superin- 
tendent of the Division of State Adult Poor. The presumption is 
against aiding such mothers under this law, since to do so would 
offend the moral feeling of respectable mothers, and would thus 
do violence to a traditional sentiment that is inseparable from a 
respect for virtue. 

8. The State Board of Charity is unwilling to consider as eligible 
for mothers' aid a woman who has money in the bank in excess of 
$200, — a sum sufficient to meet emergencies. ^Yithdrawals from 
this reserve" fund should only be made with the approval of the 
overseers. 

9. The State Board of Charity is unwilling to consider as eligible 
for mothers' aid a woman w^ho owns property, unless the circum- 
stances of a particular case are very unusual, and provided the de- 
tailed information as to the property is submitted to the State 
Board of Charity for its approval, before aid is granted under 
chapter 763. Pa}'ments such as those made to co-operative banks 
for the purpose of reducing the mortgage on a piece of property 
held by an applicant for mothers' aid are in the nature of savings, 
and as such they are disapproved. 

10. The State Board of Charity is unwilling to consider as 
eligible for mothers' aid a woman who has excessive insurance upon 
her own life or upon the lives of the members of her family. More 
than one policy on any one life, or insurance upon the lives of any 
persons other than the mother and her dependent children (and 
the father, if totally incapacitated) are disapproved. Endowment 
insurance, where the payments are in excess of 5 cents a week, is 
disapproved. In general, only industrial insurance, sufficient to 
cover burial expenses, is approved. A reasonable amount of fire 
insurance upon real estate is approved as a necessary charge. In- 
surance upon furniture is disapproved. 

11. To carry out the intent of this law, which applies only to 
those families providing a proper environment for the dependent 
children, the Board decides that the presence of male lodgers pre- 
sents dangers incompatible with the best interests of the family; 
and declines as a rule to reimburse in such cases. The Board pre- 
fers, if necessary, to reimburse, in accordance with the law, for 
additional relief granted to meet the reduction of income caused 
bv such removal. 



108 



STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



12. Since mothers' aid is available only for mothers with de- 
pendent children under fourteen yesLYs of age, when a child reaches 
the age of fourteen every effort to secure employment for him should 
be made, provided he is physically able to work. The child should, 
however, remain at school until regular employment is obtained. 
It seems hardly fair to expect public funds to support a child over 
fourteen through high school, and while we are in sympathy with 
the child receiving all the education possible, the support for his 
further education should come from private sources. 

13. While it would be possible under the law to aid a woman 
with one child, the Board believes that any competent woman in 
good health should be able to support herself and one child. This 
policy does not apply to a family where there is only one child under 
fourteen and other children over fourteen. 

14. If a member of a family aided under chapter 763, Acts of 
1913, has tuberculosis, and, in the judgment of a reputable physi- 
cian, needs sanatorium treatment, the patient must make ap]3lication 
for admission to a sanatorium, and must agree to go to a sanatorium 
at the first opportunity. Meanwhile, if there is any anti-tuberculosis 
society or nursing association in the city or town, that association 
shall be requested to take supervision of the patient, and other 
members of the family should be given a medical examination. 

Cost, 
The statute went into effect September 1, 1913. Xo appro- 
priation for its execution was available during that year. The 
Legislature of 1914 appropriated $175,000 for the purpose of 
reimbursing cities and towns as provided in the law. Of this 
sum $174,999.36 was paid out to l7l cities and towns after 
approval of the bills by this Board, as follows : —

Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 109 

On November 30, 191-i, there were bills outstanding to the 
amount of (approximately) $25,000 ; so that the total cost to 
the State government for reimbursing cities and towns for aid 
rendered under this chapter during the fifteen months of its 
operation was $200,000. The Board asks an appropriation of 
$250,000 to cover reimbursements of the current year. 

ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES OF THE BOARD. 

In addition to the duties of supervision and publicity above 
given, the Board is charged with certain duties entirely admin- 
istrative. These are chiefly grouped under two heads, viz., 
State adult poor and State minor wards. 

The administrative duties with reference to the State adult 
poor comprise the discharge of sane inmates of the State In- 
firmary and the State Farm; the execution of laws relative to 
the release on parole of prisoners at the State Farm ; the inves- 
tigation as to settlement of persons, possibly State cases, w^ho 
have been supported, relieved, or buried by cities and towns, 
and of sane inmates of State institutions ; the directing of aid 
of unsettled persons by cities and towns; the transfer of sane 
paupers from one institution to another ; the sending of paupers 
to the places within and without the State where they belong; 
and the management of the leper hospital at Penikese Island. 

Report of Penikese Hospital will be found at page 56 ante, 
under the heading of ^' Supervision," where it has been placed 
for better comparison with the State institutions which the 
Board supervises. 

The administrative duties with regard to State minor wards 
comprise the maintenance and care of delinquent, neglected, 
and dependent children coming into the custody of the Board 
through court commitment and otherwise, and the execution 
of the laws concerning abandoned infants, and infant boarding- 
houses, and the licensing of lying-in hospitals.

The State Outdoor Poor. 
Numhers. 

Unsettled persons in distress are aided in the first instance 
by the city or town in which they are so found. For purposes 
of administration, these State cases are divided into the fol- 
lomng classifications : — 

{a) The sick State poor (Revised Laws, chapter 85, sections 
14, 15). 

(&) Cases of dangerous diseases (Acts of 1902, chapter 213, 
amended by Acts of 1907, chapter 386, and Acts of 1909, chap- 
ter 380). 

(c) Cases of wife-settlement (Revised Laws, chapter 80, sec- 
tion 1, chapter 85, section 16, amended by Acts of 1909, chap- 
ter 98). 

{d) Cases of temporary aid (Revised Laws, chapter 81, sec- 
tion 21, amended by Acts of 1903, chapter 355, amended by 
Acts of 1912, chapter 331). 

The statutes provide that the expense of such relief, following 
proper notice to the Board, and approval after consideration, 
shall be reimbursed by the Commonw^ealth. In accordance with 
these laws, 16,952 such notices were received during the official 
year from 233 cities and towns, on account of 37,136 persons 
and 11,606 patients, — a net increase of 3,489, or about 26 
per cent, over the previous year. Of these notices, 7,845, con- 
cerning 8,231 individuals, were on account of persons too sick 
to be removed; 3,192 notices, concerning 3,192 individuals, 
were on account of persons sick with dangerous diseases; 1,067 
notices, concerning 4,999 individuals, were for cases of wife- 
settlement; and 4,848 notices, covering 20,714 individuals, 
were for temporary aid and transportation. Of the total nimi- 
ber of notices above mentioned, 2,990, concerning 8,708 indi- 
viduals, were in cases on account of which a previous notice 
had been received during the year. 

(a) Cases of 8ich State Poor. — The 7,845 notices of sick 
State poor were sent by 158 cities and towns, concerning 8,231 
persons, of whom 7,871 were represented as too ill to be re- 
n30ved. This number shows a net increase in the number of 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. Ill 

notices oyer the previous year of 706, or about 10 per cent., 
and, as compared with" the official year 1911-12, an increase 
of 553, or about Y^/o per cent. The largest number of notices 
received in any one month was 875 in January, and the small- 
est, 486, in September. Of these 7,845 notices, 4,465, or about 
57 per cent., were from the city of Boston, viz., 4,416 from the 
Boston City Hospital, 11 from the Institutions Department, 
and 38 from the Boston Lying-in Hospital. The number of 
visits made by the officers of the Board in the investigation of 
these 7,845 notices was 17,065. As a result of these investi- 
gations the Overseers of the Poor were directed to discontinue 
aid in 2,052 cases, — on account of the recovery of the patient 
sufficiently to permit of his removal to the State Infirmary. 
In 364 cases aid was refused because at the time of the appli- 
cation the patient could have been removed without danger. 
Out of the 5,440 cases investigated by the visitors, settlements 
were found in 65, covering 73 persons. Among those reported 
as sick there were 530 deaths. 

(h) Cases of Dangerous Diseases. — The number of notices 
received was 3,192, from 102 cities and towns, concerning 
3,192 persons, all patients. These figures show a net increase 
of 765, or about 32 per cent, over the previous year, and, as 
compared with the year 1911-12, an increase of 974, or 44 
per cent. Of these 3,192 notices, 967, or about 30 per cent., 
were from the city of Boston. The following diseases were 
reported : anthrax, 2 ; cerebro-spinal meningitis, 15 ; chicken 
pox, 8 ; conjunctivitis, 1 ; infantile paralysis, 1 ; diphtheria, 
801 ; measles, 142 ; membraneous croup, 1 ; mumps, 3 ; 
ophthalmia neonatorum, 164; pellagra, 1; pertussis, 5; rabid 
dog bite, 2 ; scarlet fever, 860 ; smallpox, 5 ; tetanus, 1 ; 
trachoma, 3 ; tuberculosis, 872 ; and typhoid fever, 305. The 
number of visits made by the officers of the Board in these 
cases was 5,625, and of 2,057 new cases investigated, settle- 
ments were found in 220, covering 220 persons. 

(c) Cases of Wife-settleinent. — The number of notices re- 
ceived was 1,067 from 68 cities and towns, concerning 4,999 
persons, of whom 543 were sick. These figures show a net in- 
crease in the number of notices, as compared wdth the previous

year, of 301, or about 39 per cent., and as compared \^dtli the 
year 1911-12 an increase of 312, or about 41 per cent. Of 
these 1,067 notices, 473, or about 44 per cent., were from the 
city of Boston. As these 1,067 notices represent men whose 
families have settlements in some city or towm within the Com- 
monwealth, and 4 of these men were found to have a settle- 
ment, the total number aided by the State was 1,063, of whom 
374 were sick. The number of visits made in these cases was 
1,101. As a result of the visits, the local authorities were ad- 
vised to discontinue aid in 3 cases. 

(d) Cases of Temporary Aid. — The number of notices re- 
ceived was 4,848, concerning 20,714 persons from 186 cities 
and towns. The largest number of notices received in any one 
month was 1,229 in January, and the smallest number, 201 in 
June. The whole numl)er sliows a net increase, as compared 
v\'ith the preceding year, of 1,717, or about 55 per cent., and 
v/ith the year 1911-12 an increase of 2,001, or about 70 per 
cent. Of these notices, 570, or about 12 per cent., were re- 
ceived from the city of Boston. The numl^er of visits made 
under these notices was 5,425. There were 1,624 new cases 
investigated by the agents of the Board, and 187 settlements 
were found, covering 770 persons. As a result of visitation, 
aid was discontinued in 373 cases, and in 30 cases aid was 
refused. 

Transportation has been furnished during the year to 193 
persons ; of these, 84 were sent to European and Asiatic coun- 
tries, viz., Austria, 4; Azores, 16; Finland, 5; Ireland, 11; 
Italy, 36 ; Russia, 5 ; Syria, 2 ; Turkey, 5 ; 36 to Canada and 
other British Provinces; 73 to other States, viz., California, 5; 
Connecticut, 10 ; Florida, 1 ; Maine, 2 ; Minnesota, 2 ; Xew 
Hampshire, 5 ; Xew Jersey, 7 ; J^ew York, 11 ; Ohio, 1 ; Penn- 
sylvania, 10; Rhode Island, 8; Vermont, 7; Wisconsin, 4 (Re- 
vised Laws, chapter 81, section 21). 

Transportation has also been provided for 50 shipwrecked 
seamen from Chatham, Eastham, Xantucket, Tisbury, Truro, 
and Welltleet to Boston (Revised Laws, chapter 66, section 7).

The After Care of Women axd Children discharged by 
THE Board from the State Infirmary. 

The results accomplished since the inauguration of this 
social service work have warranted a continuance of the Board's 
effort to assist these unfortunate women and children by sur- 
rounding them with better influences and environment. In 
addition to its paid force the committee in charge has been 
fortunate in securing excellent volunteer service, and there has 
been a tendency on the part of private societies to give greater 
co-operation. Heretofore it has been the practice of private 
societies in general to refuse supervision of a woman who has 
had more than one illegitimate child. The Boston Conference 
on Illegitimacy has undoubtedly been a large factor in enlarg- 
ing the acti^dties of the private agencies. The committee be- 
lieves that if many of these unfortunate women had received 
proper supervision after the birth of the first child they would 
have been saved from similar experience in the future. The 
time required for investigation, and the formation of a pro- 
tective plan prior to the discharge of each case from the In- 
firmary, is so great that additional assistance is urgently needed 
for the follow-up work. 

During the year consideration has been given to 198 women 
admitted with 114 children, in addition to 55 women with 39 
children who were inmates at the beginning of the year. Of the 
admitted cases, 140 women were pregTiant, accompanied by 27 
children, and 58 were not pregnant, accompanied by 87 children. 

One hundred twenty-four of these women were unmarried, 
and may be classified as follows: — 

Pregnant for the first illegitimate child 60 

Pregnant for the second illegitimate child (9 accompanied by 

fii^st illegitimate child) 29 

Pregnant for the third illegitimate child (5 aecomiDanied by 1 

illegitimate child) 6 

Pregnant for the fourth illegitimate child 1 

Pregnant for the fifth illegitimate child (1 accompanied by 2 

illegitimate children) 2 

Not pregnant (accompanied by first illegitimate child) ... 19

The 74 married women may be classified as follows : —

Pregnant for illegitimate child (accompanied by 2 legitimate 

children) 14

There were 124 births (23 legitimate and 101 illegitimate). 
The rate of infant mortality in these cases was very low, only 
14 having died, approximately 11 per cent. The total number 
of deaths was 38, which includes 8 women and 30 children, 
6 of whom died of congenital syphilis. Twenty-three of the 
women admitted were suffering from syphilis and 16 with 
gonorrhea, or a total of approximately 20 per cent. Fourteen 
of the 50 women observed for feeble-mindedness were adjudged 
by the alienist as proper cases for institutional care. The birth- 
places of the women were as follows : Ireland, 40 ; Poland, 32 ; 
United States, 27, including 9 colored; Canada, 24; England 
and E'ova Scotia, 25 ; Italy, 21 ; Portugal and Azores, 11 ; 
Russia, 6; Sweden, 5 ; Syria, 3; Scotland, 2; Finland, 2. 

Seventy were employed at general housework; 50, mill and 
factory operatives ; 45, waitresses ; and the remainder at vari- 
ous occupations. Some of these women read and write fairly 
well, but none have had more than a grammar school education. 

The number discharged during the year was 212 women and

118 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The legal work accomplished by the employment of a clerk 
having knowledge of the law has given much satisfaction. It 
is to be regretted that a larger number of private societies do 
not employ legal assistance, as many of these women could 
undoubtedly save themselves from becoming public dependents 
if more adequate gratuitous legal assistance were available. 
The committee believes a continuing order for support of ille- 
gitimate children is preferable to acceptance of a lump sum 
unless a large amount can be secured, and this appears to be 
the general attitude of the courts. Paternity was established 
by the court in 15 cases ; 4 private agreements were made be- 
tween the mother and putative father; 5 cases referred to dis- 
trict attorneys; 2 marriages ordered by the court; 4 other 
marriages arranged; and 5 warrants for nonsupport were 
issued. In several cases, after full investigation, prosecution 
was deemed inadvisable, and in 8 cases in which warrants were 
issued the putative fathers have never been located. The 
amount of money collected during the year for the support of 
these children was $3,578.03, exclusive of collections by pro- 
bation officers. Twelve mothers during the year have permitted 
the superintendent of State adult poor to act as trustee for the 
children's funds, amounting to $1,771.99, which has been de- 
posited in an institution for savings. Withdrawals from these 
funds are granted when required. Such supervision of ex- 
penditures is an important feature of the follow-up work. 

Fifty-three women Avho applied at the office of the Adult 
Poor Division for advice or assistance were disposed of as fol- 
lows: 28 referred to private societies for care; 8 to Overseers 
of the Poor of the place of legal settlement; 2 to the Federal 
authorities; 1 committed to Danvers State Hospital; 4 j)ro- 
vided with transportation ; and 10 sent to the State Infiraiary. 

The appreciation of the committee is extended to the In- 
firmary authorities and private charities for their continued 
co-operation, the volunteer investigators, the two volunteers who 
are conducting two classes a week in English for the foreign 
girls in the institution, also a sewing class, as well as the Smith 
College girls and others who have sent clothes and Christmas 
C'ifts.

Childeex IX THE Care axd Custody of the Board. 
By reference to the tables on page 128, et seq., it mil appear 
that at the beginning of the List official year, December 1, 1913, 
there were 5,494 children in the care and custody of the Board, 
— 404 delinquent children, 40 wayward children, 3,104 
neglected children, and 1,946 dependent children. There were 
915 children received during the year, viz., 126 delinquent 
children, 9 waj-w^ard children, 412 neglected children, and 370 
dependent children. The total number under care during the 
year was, therefore, 6,411. There were 807 discharged, viz., 
202 delinquent children, 7 wayward children, 448 neglected 
children, and 150 dependent children. At the close of the year, 
November 30, 1914, there remained in charge of the Board, 
therefore, 5,604 children, classified as: delinquent children, 
328; wayward children, 42; neglected children, 3,068; and 
dependents, 2,166. Of the 6,411 children under care, 5,228 
were over three years of age and were cared for as follows : in 
places receiving wages, 708 ; in places free of expense to the 
State for board, 560; in places partly supported by the State, 
124; in places fully supported by the State, 3,251 ; at the State 
Infirmary and other institutions, not penal, subject to care and 
treatment, 438; married, 17; and whereabouts unknown, 130.^ 

Children under Three Years of Age. 
The total number of infants in charge of the Board at the 
beginning of the official year December 1, 1913, was 379; the 
number received during the year was 259, making the whole 
number supported by the State, 638. There remained at the 
close of the official year, November 30, 1914, 376 infants. Of 
the 638 infants supported 5 were legally adopted; 183 were 
transferred, having reached the age of three years; 22 were 

1 In addition to these 5,604 children, the Board had under super\-ision and \'isitation, Xovem- 
ber 30, 1914, 458 inmates of the Lyman School for Boys; 282 inmates of the State Industrial School 
for Girls; 238 inmates of the Industrial School for Boys; 1,104 boys and 366 girls in the custody 
of the Trustees for Massachusetts Training Schools outside of the schools; 150 boj-s and 108 girls, 
inmates of the Massachusetts Hospital School; 141 boys and 137 girls, inmates of the four State 
sanatoria; 160 boys and 258 girls, inmates of the State Infirmary, who are either young infants 
with their mothers or else under hospital treatment; 379 inmates of the county training schools, 
and 972 children supported at the expense of the cities and towns; making, approximately, a total 
of 10,357 children in the care and custody and under the supervision of the Board.

(liscliarged to relatives, 7 to places of settlement, 4 to courts; 
1 was discharged on bail and 40 died. Twenty-six of the re- 
maining 376 were in free homes. 

Seventy-nine of the 259 infants received were committed bv 
the Overseers of the Poor, and 7 by the superintendent of the 
State Infirmary, under the provisions of section 20, chapter 83 
of the Revised Laws. Twenty-five of this number were found- 
lings, and the remainder were indigent infants having no kno^^T.i 
settlement in the Commonwealth. 

]^inety-five children were received under section 36, chapter 
83 ; 2 were received under section 13, chapter 83 ; 2 were re- 
njoved from unsuitable boarding places under section 26, 
chapter 83 ; and 74 were committed as neglected under the pro- 
visions of chapter 334 as amended by chapter 131 of the Acts 
of the year 1909. 

The medical visitor and his assistants made 6,489 visits. 
This number includes visits to infant wards boarded in families, 
investigation of homes of apjDlicants for infant wards to board, 
and inspection of homes of applicants for licenses to board in- 
fants; also physical examination of children at this office and 
at the I^ursery. 

There were 296 children admitted to the Xursery. 

The percentage of mortality for the year for the whole num- 
ber of children supported was 6.27. 

Two hundred eleven of the 638 infants supported during the 
year were under one year of age. Thirty-three of this number 
died, making the percentage of deaths for ■ infants under one 
year of age 15.64. 

Of the 33 deaths of infants under one year of age 3 died 
after reaching the age of one year, making the actual number 
of deaths of infants under one year 30, and the percentage 
14.21. 

There was a slight increase in the mortality rate over last 
year. Of the 40 deaths 17 were at the State Infirmary and 9 
of the 17 died of congenital syphilis. 

There were 25 foundlings received during the year, 4 less 
than last year. Following up of clues and investigation led 
to identification in 5 cases, with the result that the children 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 121 

were discharged from our custody to parents or place of settle- 
ment. 

Infants under three years of age are under the care of two 
registered nurses who visit and report their condition, direct 
the boarding women in the preparation of their food, look after 
their clothing, and see that they have good care and training. 
They also visit and report on the homes of applicants for in- 
fants to board and licensed boarding houses for infants. 

Children over Three Years of Age. 

The total number of children over three years of age in 
charge of the Board IS^vember 30, 1914, was 5,228 — 2,10G 
girls and 3,122 boys. This number includes 3,058 children 
between the ages of three and twelve years, — 890 girls and 
1,280 boys over twelve years of age. 

A study of reports of work accomplished during the past 
year shows few radical changes in method. It is gratifying, 
hoAvever, to note the progress which has been made in certain 
directions. The work is constantly increasing, but with a grad- 
ual improvement in methods it is believed that better results 
^y\\\ be obtained than ever before. This is particularly notice- 
able in the matter of the education of our wards, to which 
special attention has been given during the past year. Believ- 
ing that education and upbuilding of character should be the 
goal of effort in behalf of each ward, the Board does not ad- 
vocate the policy of removing a child from school and starting 
him at work when he has reached his fourteenth birthday. In 
every case, v/hen a child's ambition or ability warrants an 
extension of his term of schooling, arrangements are made by 
which this may be accomplished. 

It is our duty to secure free homes for these children when 
possible; but as not every child's physical condition warrants 
his being placed in a home where it is necessary for him to 
earn his board and clothing by working out of school hours, we 
are continuing at board a larger number than formerly. TTe 
believe that by thus prolonging his schooling period and in- 
creasing the child's future efficiency the interests of the com- 
munitv are better served.

There were at the close of the year 1,540 children, viz., 669 
girls and 871 boys over fourteen years of age in the care of the 
Board. Of this number, as will be seen from the above table, 
376 girls and 347 boys were attending school. In other words, 
56 per cent, of these girls and 40 per cent, of the boys over 
fourteen years of age are continuing their education. Eighty- 
four girls and 65 boys are at high school or college, and 2 
girls are attending normal school. Eifty-seven boys and 24 
girls are working at trades, and the remainder of the girls, 
about 40 per cent., have been placed in families at housework. 
Several of the latter are receiving preliminary domestic train- 
ing which every child should have, and the others are working 
at wages. About 50 per cent, of the boys are placed on farms. 

The Board aims to raise the standard of wages for boys and 
girls placed out, in the belief that efficient service is worthy 
of recognition and that a capable worker should receive j^roper 
compensation. 

A comparison of the conditions as stated above, with the 
report of the previous year, will show a marked increase in the 
numbers of both boys and girls who are attending school. These 
figures compare favorably with those of other societies engaged 
in child placing.

Although in every case these societies deal with a compara- 
tively small group, the percentage of those at school does not 
greatly vary from that of this department. 

The problem of providing suitable temporary care for the 
mentally defective is one which still confronts us. We have 
continued the arrangements made two years ago by which we 
placed small groups of these children in carefully selected 
homes in the community. We now have 17 homes providing 
for a total of 135 children, for whom no provision could be 
made at the schools for the feeble-minded, owing to lack of 
room. In addition, to the above number, 137 of the most 
urgent cases are being sheltered at the State Infirmary, await- 
ing admission to the schools. 

Investigating Department. 
The law providing for aid in the home for mothers with de- 
pendent children (chapter 763, Acts of 1913) has now been in 
force for a sufficient length of time to form some opinion as to 
its effect on the work of this division. That the operation of 
the act has not resulted in a diminution of activity in our work 
may be deduced from the fact that applications exceed by 108 
those received in the preceding year. The business depression 
of the past year is in part responsible for this increase. The 
situation which causes a family to apply to the State minor 
wards for relief is not often such that it is advisable to ask for 



124 STATE BOARD OF CKIRITY. [P. D. 17. 

aid in the home from public funds. Only 10 of the 267 cases 
referred by this Board to other jDublic agencies and relieved 
by them were provided for under the new law. 

It was anticipated that many applications would be made for 
the discharge of children already in the care of the Board to 
receive the benefit of the mothers* aid law. Only four such 
applications have l>een of sufficient merit to warrant consider- 
ation, and in each case the children have been allowed to re- 
turn home on trial. It is interesting to note that in one of 
these cases the father who had been ser^-ing a sentence in jail 
has returned, so that aid has been discontinued, but the condi- 
tions in the home are so serious that it will probably be neces- 
sary to remove the children again. In another instance the 
mother is incompetent, and, though under careful supervision, 
will evidently prove unable to meet the situation adequately. 
In the other two cases the ti'ial has proved sufficiently successful 
to warrant the discharge of the children. 

An increasing amount of work arises from applications from 
boarding women who receive children without references or satis- 
factory assurance of support. In a large proix>rtion of cases so 
reported it has been possible to locate relatives, and either re- 
turn the child to them or obtain payment for the boarding 
woman. One mother who had advertised in a Boston paper 
for a boarding home was located in Xew Hampshire, and her 
baby returned after a local charitable society agreed to supervise. 

In 79 cases when it was impossible to locate relatives, or the 
lx)arding women were unable to bear the burden of support dur- 
ing investigation, commitment was advised under section 20, 
chapter 83, Revised Laws, and the case carefully followed up 
after the child became a State ward. In many cases so com- 
mitted during the past year it has Ix-en possible to obtain 
histories the value of which is evident in planning for the 
child's care and treatment. 

Seven of these children had mothers who were inmates of in- 
stitutions for the feeble-minded, epileptic, or insane. Under 
this section providing for the commitment of unsettled children 
8 orphans have been received into the custody of the Board, and 
histories have been obtained. In 9 of the remaining cases where 
commitment was advised the clews were insufficient to obtain 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 



125 



either history or support. In 8 cases discharge was deemed in- 
advisable, but partial support was obtained and the family re- 
lation strengthened. The investigation in 31 cases is still 
incomplete, but in 2, support is being received pending dis- 
charge. In 2 cases settlement has been established and the 
towns are reimbursing for support. Fourteen children have 
been discharged after careful investigation. In one case the 
mother was arrested and deported with her baby. In another 
case a marriage was brought about and the baby is being cared 
for under careful supervision.

126 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

8ui')i:)ort. 

The Board has firmly established the policy of receiving de- 
pendent settled children only upon securing written agreements 
from the Overseers of the Poor of the town of settlement to re- 
imburse the Board for the expense of support. In the case 
of unsettled children received under provisions of chapter 83, 
section 36 of the Revised Laws, volimtary agreements signed 
by the parents or relatives at the time of the application to the 
Board are, if possible, obtained. In several cases when rela- 
tives of abandoned children received under provisions of chap- 
ter 83, section 20 of the Revised Laws, have been located, and 
conditions do not warrant the return of the children to them, 
contributions have been obtained toward support. 

Through the efforts of the investigating visitors, by means of 
these agreements, the sum of $11,513.73 has been received from 
Overseers of the Poor, and the sum of $2,540.80 from parents 
or relatives. Through the children's visitors in the placing-out 
department an additional amount of $1,003.85 has been received. 

Nonsupport Proceedings. 
During the past year the sum of $4,450.69 was collected from 
parents of children under the care of the Board, by means of 
proceedings instituted in court under the provisions of the uni- 
form desertions act. Acts of 1911, chapter 456, or through agree- 
ments entered into with the parents to avoid court action. This 
amount is in addition to the sums mentioned in the preceding 
section entitled '^ Support," and represents the amount obtained 
by direct legal action by the special agent of the Board. 

Adoptions. 
At the beginning of the year there were 28 applications for 
children for adoption awaiting investigation. During the year 
190 applications were received ; 35 of these were withdrawn and 
19 were disapproved at once without investigation. One hun- 
dred forty-three applications have been investigated during the 
year, and of this number 38 have been disapproved. In the 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 127 

105 homes approved, 7.'2 children have been placed, and there 
are now 21 applications awaiting investigation. 

Fifty-three children have been adopted during the year, — 18 
boys and 35 girls, — the oldest child adopted being a girl twenty 
years of age, and the youngest a girl of nine months. 

Two applications were received from Xew York State, all 
the others coming froin persons in Xew England. The greater 
number of these were from Massachusetts, but 2 applications 
were received from Rhode Island, 3 from Maine, 5 from Xew 
Hampshire, 2 from Connecticut and 2 from Vermont. 

There are now 87 children who are placed on trial for 
adoption. 

The following tables furnish comparative data concerning the 
several classes of the Board's children : —

In order to insure greater efficiency and larger effort in serv- 
ice, and also to prevent the necessity of frequent consideration 
of special petitions for increase in salary, the Board has for 
many years maintained a graded system of increases operating 
automatically in the several grades of its employees. By chap- 
ter 605, Acts of 1914:, the Commonwealth substantially enacted 
this system into its statutes, though the minimum amounts to 
be paid under the new law are materially higher than those 
allowed under the Board's system. As applied to all branches 
of the Board's service, other than clerical positions falling under 
the law above mentioned, the system is as follows : — ■ 

Men'. — Visitors : first two years, $1,200 ; third year, $1,300 ; 
fourth year, $1,4:00; thereafter, $1,500. Transportation of- 
ficers holding special District Police commissions : first two 
years, $900; third and fourth years, $1,000; thereafter, $1,100. 
Other transportation officers: first two years, $700; third year, 
$800; fourth year, $9(f0 ; fifth year, $1,000; thereafter, $1,100. 
Medical visitors of State adult poor: first two years, $1,200; 
third year, $1,350; fourth year, $1,500; fifth year, $1,650; 
thereafter, $1,800. Medical visitors of infants : first two years, 
$1,200; third year, $1,275; fourth year. $1,350; fifth year. 
$1,425; thereafter, $1,500. Assistant visitors: first two years. 
$600; third year, $700; fourth year, $800; fifth year, $900; 



166 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

thereafter, $1,000. Messengers: first two years, $250; second 
two years, $300 ; thereafter, $400. 

Women. — Transportation officers: first two years, $000; 
third year, $650 ; fourth year, $700 ; fifth year, $750 ; there- 
after, $800. Visitors: first two years, $800; third year, $900; 
thereafter, $1,000. Visitor-at-large of boarded children: first 
two years, $800; third year, $875; fourth year, $950; fifth 
year, $1,025 ; thereafter, $1,100.

present fiscal year as follows: Clifford B. Ballard, June 1, 
1915, to $1,300; Ruth A. Beebe, October 7, 1915, to $900;

By the provisions of chapter 605, Acts of 1914, above men- 
tioned, the Board was required to classify its clerical service. 
Through the automatic action of this statute, based upon the 
classification made, certain salaries in the Board's clerical force 
w^ere increased as follows: Lilla D. Baker, December 1, 1914, 
to $900; Agnes F. Brovra, December 1, 1914, to $750; Mary

Part II

CHAEITABLE COEPOKATIONS. 



Investigation of Charitable Organizations seeking Incorporation. 

Chapter 181 of the Acts of 1910 requires the Board to in- 
vestigate, give public hearing, and report its findings to the 
Secretary of the Commonwealth, in all cases of charitable 
organizations which seek incorporation. The text of the act is 
as follows : — 

Acts of 1910, Chapter 181. 

Sectiox 1. Before making and issuing a certificate for the incorpora- 
tion of a charitable corporation the secretaiy of the commonwealth shall 
also forward such statement as is described in the preceding section to 
the state board of charity, which shall immediately make an investiga- 
tion as to the persons who have asked to be incorporated and as to the 
purposes of the incorporation, and any other material facts relative 
thereto, and shall give them a public hearing, notice of which shall be 
published once a week for three successive weeks in some paper pub- 
lished in the county in Avhich the corporation is to have its principal 
office or rooms, and if said office or rooms are to be in Boston, in some 
Boston daily paper, the last publication to be at least three days before 
the day set for the hearing, and shall forthwith report to the secretary 
of the commonwealth all the facts ascertained by it. If it appears to 
the secretary of the commonwealth from said report or otherwise that 
the probable purpose of the formation of the proposed corporation is 
to cover any illegal business, or that the persons asking for incorpora- 
tion are not suitable persons, from lack of financial ability or from any 
other cause, he shall refuse to issue his certificate. If he refuses to issue 
his certificate, the persons asking to be incorporated may appeal to the 
superior court, which shall hear the case and finally determine whether 
or not the certificate of incorporation shall be issued. 

Sectiox 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage. 

During the year ending Xovember 30, 1911, (^Q applications 
for charters have been referred by the Secretary of the Com- 
monwealth to this Board, which has investigated, given hear- 
ings, and reported upon the 56 applications noted below. In

During the four years and nine months which have elapsed

1914) the Board has reported upon 269 applications for char- 
ters, 219 of which were granted and 50 refused, while in 38 
other cases the applications were withdrawn. 

Inspection of Charitable Corporations. 

Chapter 379 of the Acts of 1909 requires the State Board 
of Charity to make annual inspection of charitable corpora- 
tions which consent to said inspection. The text of the act is 
as follows : — 

Acts of 1909, Chapter 379. 
Section" 1. The state board of charity, upon the request or with the 
consent of a charitable corporation which, under the provision of sec- 
tion fourteen of chapter eighty-four of the Revised Laws, as amended 
by chapter four hundred and two of the acts of the vear nineteen 



vi STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

hundred and three, is required to make an annual report to said board, 
shall, at least once in every year, visit and inspect the institution or 
investigate the work of such corporation. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage. 

In the four years since the work of inspection was begun, 
828 visits of inspection have been made to charitable corpora- 
tions in all parts of the Commonwealth, including 231 inspec- 
tions during the past year. 

In the past year there have been 205 inquiries in regard to 
particular organizations by persons not connected with them 
as officers or members, and 254 inquiries on general matters 
connected with the field of private charity. 

In consequence of visits of inspection, 48 conferences were 
held with representatives of various societies, with the object 
of developing improved standards of work. A number of these 
have borne fruit. One conference resulted in the adoption of 
a blank for recording in detail the medical examination of 
children received into care by child-placing agencies. Prior 
to this but one agency in the State had used such a blank. Con- 
ferences with three other societies were followed by plans in- 
volving a complete reorganization of their work ; two important 
agencies have now bonded their officers and employees who 
handle funds. 

During the year duplication in the work of inspecting pri- 
vate incorporated charities in this Commonwealth has been 
greatly reduced by the co-operation of two large private bodies 
which have agreed to leave this field of inspection in the hands 
of this Board. 

The Board does not indorse charities seeking contributions 
from the public. This rule is never varied, regardless of the 
known standing of the society in question. For this reason no 
agencies are warranted in using the fact that they have been 
inspected, in such manner as to lead the public to infer that 
inspection means their approval by the Board. The fallacy 
of such an assumption is apparent from the fact that of the 
231 visits made during the year to societies incorporated as 
charities, 13 were to agencies found to be non-charitable, 9 of 
them being business organizations for medical work. One of 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. vii 

these non-charitable agencies voluntarily surrendered its char- 
ter dunng the year; the charter of another was annulled by 
the Supreme Court ; while a third is at present operating under 
a different name. 

Fifty-three organizations visited may be classed as not well 
managed, since they do not measure up to reasonable standards 
of work. Among them are 9 children's homes and 2 placing- 
out societies, 4 day nurseries, 2 societies for organizing charity, 
26 relief agencies, and 10 others giving various forms of assist- 
ance. 

The 165 remaining societies vary greatly in their efficiency. 
These include 40 children's homes, 9 placing societies, 16 day 
nurseries, 22 relief agencies, 4 societies for organizing charity, 
36 agencies giving various foiTQS of medical or nursing care, 
and 38 miscellaneous organizations. Somewhat less than half 
of this number can properly be considered charities of the first 
rank. The others maintain fair standards of work in some 
directions, while falling below in others. For this reason they 
cannot be regarded either as poorly managed or as wholly first- 
rate organizations. 

• Even among agencies which strive to maintain high ideals in 
their work there is sometimes a tendency to be lax in the matter 
of safeguarding the funds. Where directors regard them- 
selves as trustees, however, a good office system of accounting- 
is usually installed, and a yearly audit is made by a certified 
accountant of all funds, including not only those standing in 
the name of the society, but also those held by individuals 
connected with the organization in trust for its wards or bene- 
ficiaries. Satisfactory bonds should be required from those 
who handle the society's funds, including trust funds and 
money belonging to wards. All securities in which such 
amounts are invested or evidences of deposit should be kept in 
a safety deposit box which should not be opened except in the 
presence of at least two persons. In short, the same safeguards 
should be employed in dealing with the funds of charitable 
societies as with those of business corporations, and all neces- 
sary expense connected therewith should be regarded as 
legitimate. 



viii STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. I). 17. 

Fifty-six children's institutions, caring for 10,634: children, 
and 13 placing societies, supervising 2.447 children in foster 
homes, reported to this Board last year. Their total expendi- 
tures for the year were $1,385,145. The inspection during the 
past year of 60 of these agencies afforded an opportunity to 
compare their methods and standards of work. Though the 
children's agencies form a small proportion of the incorporated 
private charities of the State, yet they are one of the most 
important groups in the field of social work. Because of their 
importance a statement of the methods followed by the best 
managed among them is given, in the belief that it may assist 
the rest to measure the efficiency of their own efforts. 

The first requisite of child welfare work is the realization 
that it constitutes a highly specialized field necessitating the 
employment of specially trained agents. These agents should 
be competent to investigate applications, and decide whether 
or not the child in question should be cared for apart from its 
family. The best managed children's societies do not accept 
children imless they are destitute or neglected or for some 
special reason can be better cared for by others than by their 
own people. They do not separate them from their families 
because of poverty alone, but refer such applicants to agencies 
which deal with problems of family relief and reconstruction. 

Xor do societies with intelligent directors countenance the 
separation of mothers and their infants unless the former are 
feeble-minded or are manifestly unable to give their children 
proper care. Wlien separation of mother and child is advisable, 
the society should endeavor to secure appropriate institutional 
care for the mother. 

In these more efficient private agencies the workers engaged 
in the investigation of applications for placement of children 
do not as a rtile attempt to handle more than 12 new applica- 
tions per month. Proper records should be kept showing the 
results of investigations, the plan advised, and subsequent 
action. 

Children who are accepted for care apart from their families 
should be given a physical examination at the outset and all 
necessarv medical attention. A mental examination is often 



Part II.] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. ix 

advisable also. The results of such investigation and the treat- 
ment should be preserved on a special blank. Children cared 
for in institutions, who do not attend the public schools, should 
have a regular medical inspection at least once a year, and a 
dental examination at least once in six months. 

Instances have been found of children in institutions sutfer- 
ing from diseases such as tuberculosis, which might have been 
detected in an earlier and curable stage if there had been a 
system of medical examination and inspection. 

There should be suitable quarters for isolating suspicious 
cases of sickness. The lack of such accommodation in a num- 
ber of institutions has led to one epidemic of contagious dis- 
ease after another, entailing loss of life and great expense. 

Societies which place their children in family homes instead 
of in institutions should subject every such home to investiga- 
tion by a trained worker before using it. 

Xone of the placing societies has established standards for 
such an investigation which bring out adequately the physical 
conditions in the homes under investigation. A description of 
the sleeping rooms and toilets, and their location with reference 
to one another, should be sufficiently clear to furnish full in- 
formation. A diagram of the premises will be found a useful 
part of the record. 

The suitability of the homes for certain types of children, 
and the preferences of the foster parents, should also be studied 
in order that children may be carefully fitted into homes in 
the first instance and not run the risk of being shifted about. 
In the investigation of the home, both foster parents should be 
seen, and a record made of the interview. 

In the best managed societies children are visited at intervals 
of from one to three months, according to age. The visitors 
are specially trained for the work and do not have more than 
35 to 45 children in their care, the number varying with the 
ages of their charges, the frequency of visits, and the distance 
traveled. The Board is constantly asking for more visitors in 
its own work in order to approach this desirable standard. 
Children should be placed within the limits of the Common- 
wealth, in order that there mav be no conflict of I'urisdiction 



X STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

over their custody^ and in communities which afford oppor- 
tunities for regular church and school attendance and whole- 
some recreation. Brothers and sisters should not be separated. 
Free homes are not desirable, as a rule, for children under 
twelve to fourteen. Children between fourteen and sixteen 
in free homes should have opportunity for educational or voca- 
tional training. If board cannot be secured from interested 
friends and relatives for children of boarding age, and the so- 
ciety has funds which are sufficient for supervision only, then 
applicants who can pay nothing should be referred to some 
public or private agency which is prepared to pay the addi- 
tional amount necessary to procure good boarding homes. The 
archaic system of indenturing children during minority has 
been practically superseded by more intelligent methods in this 
Commonwealth . 

Few children's institutions in this State accept infants under 
two years. Experience teaches that bottle-fed babies, when 
cared for in large groups, are particularly susceptible to dis- 
ease, and the death rate among them is apt to be abnormally 
high. Such infants thrive best when placed in families where 
they receive individual attention under the supervision of a 
trained nurse ; this plan is followed by the best managed agen- 
cies which accept infants. Institutions which receive them do 
well to employ all the recognized safeguards, such as super- 
vision by trained nurses, sterilization of feeding utensils, a 
pure milk supply, the separation of well from ailing infants, 
and the care of the whole number in small groups. 

A cardinal principle followed by intelligent workers is that 
a normal child should not be kept in an institution any longer 
than is necessary to reconstruct his home or to find a suitable 
place for him in the community. To carry out such plan effi- 
ciently, well qualified field workers are employed to find family 
homes for placeable children, and supervise them there. The 
result of such a plan is to reduce the stay of the children in 
the institution to a period sufficient for a thorough physical 
examination, necessary medical and dental treatment, and any 
training needed to make them acceptable in a good family home. 
Children who are difficult to place in families may be sent to 



Part IL] CHARITABLE CORPORATIONS. xi 

appropriate rnstitiitions. for care. In short, the home conducted 
according to the best accepted methods is regarded more in the 
light of a temporary shelter, where the needs of the child may 
be studied, than as a permanent abode. 

When children are taken by the institution for more than 
temporary care, its responsibility should extend to all matters 
relating to their welfare. Its wards should therefore have 
opportunities for such physical, mental and moral development 
as they would have obtained in good family homes. The im- 
portant physical requirements of fresh air, sunlight, personal 
cleanliness, proper clothing, nourishing food, good sleeping 
conditions and opportunity for play should receive attention. 
The d.ietary should be planned by a person having a knowledge 
of food values, and should be revised occasionally under the 
supervision of a physician. Baths and showers should be used 
at least twice a week. Dormitories should be planned to give 
each child a single bed and at least 60 square feet of floor 
space. Indirect ventilation will usually be found necessary 
to insure pure air at night. The children should be under the 
constant supervision of adults, both day and night, even though 
children of one sex only are cared for. 

Children of school age who are not sent to the public school 
should be given instruction in all the studies required by law. 
This instruction should be in the English language, and should 
equal in thoroughness and efficiency the instruction in the pub- 
lic schools in the same city or town.^ 

All the agencies, whether placing out or institutional, whose 
children attend the public schools, should require and file the 
reports made by their teachers. Such reports form a valuable 
part of the record and should be helpful to the agency at all 
stages of the children's progress, especially when advising them 
in regard to vocational training. One placing society in this 
State already requires sach reports. 

Light household duties should be assigned to the children 
according to their age and strength, to be performed under the 
direction of persons capable of training them in good methods. 
The work should always be made educational, and should not 

1 Revised Laws, chapter 44, section 2. 



xii STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

have for its prime object the saving of hired labor. The older 
children should be given manual training, cooking, sewing, and 
other subjects usually taught in the public schools. 

Children who remain in the institution after reaching the 
age of fourteen or fifteen years should not be kept merely for 
the work they are able to do, but should have opportunities for 
vocational training, such as printing, carpentry, dressmaking, 
and other branches which can often be combined economically 
with the needs of the institution. 

The well-managed institutions for children never lose sight 
of the fact that housework and chores do not take the place of 
physical training and play. They therefore provide ample 
space for both indoor and outdoor exercise under safe condi- 
tions, and games and reading matter for rainy days and 
evenings. 

Before children are discharged from the custody of the in- 
stitution, a careful investigation should be made of the homes 
to which they are to go. This is especially important when 
children have been taken by the society because of poor con- 
ditions in their own homes and it is proposed to return them 
to their families. That many institutions fail utterly in this 
regard is evidenced by their records, which show a large num- 
ber of children returned several times in succession. Of the 
children who are not returned, little or nothing is kno^\ai by 
many institutions. The ocr^asional child who is known to be 
living in neglect after leaving the institution which sheltered 
him is an indication of what may happen when a good system 
of aftercare does not exist. Having undertaken the responsi- 
bility of making good citizens of the children, the society which 
adopts intelligent methods will assure itself that they go into 
wholesome surroundings where a normal development is pos- 
sible. 

In order that the work of inspection may be helpful and 
constructive the Board stands ready to give to all societies that 
have been inspected an opinion as to the efficiency of their 
work, and suggestions as to needed changes.

Annual Reports of Charitable Corporations. 

The law provides that the Board shall receive annual re- 
ports of all charitable corporations whose personal property 
is exempt from taxation, and for the dissolution of corpora- 
tions which fail for two consecutive years to report to this 
Board. The text of the law is as follows (Revised Laws, chap- 
ter 84, section 14, amended by Acts of 1903, chapter 402, 
amended by Acts of 1913, chapter 82) : — 

A charitable corporation whose personal property is exempt from
